This is the story of 2009 in a nutshell – smooth, ripe, luscious, instantly lovable. Pushing 15-per-cent alcohol, it’s made mainly from soft merlot and is ripe as can be without veering into cloying raisin territory. The big blackberry fruit is disciplined by supple, gently dry tannins and moderate acidity, complemented by licorice and a friendly whiff of barnyard funk. Drink it now or over the next decade.
