2012 Ridgemill Estate Merlot
Tasted over three days. Certainly needs a thorough decant. The acidity starts out pokey but works itself into the wine in time. It never quite got to where I wanted it but that was my main complaint.
Sweet blackberry and plums matched to savoury olive tapenade with chocolate oak and a bit of leafiness. Menthol lift. Good depth, reach and vitality. Fine, grainy tannin. Shows real promise. 90
