    Item no. 96705

    Winemaker's Notes:

    The 2006 Gryphon Merlot expresses distinctive Coonawarra fruit with its luscious aromas, rich palate and refined, silky tannin structure. This medium bodied Merlot is loaded with regional personality and amazing finesse. The bouquet is complex with spicy berry and floral notes integrated with hints of smoky vanilla oak. On the palate, rich red berry flavors are framed by velvety tannins. Drink now or cellar further to garner additional complexity.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Ruby-red. Exotically perfumed nose displays sexy raspberry, blackberry, Asian spice and incense scents. Juicy red berry and cherry flavors are complemented by subtle mocha and succulent herb notes, with silky tannins adding shape. Finishes with outstanding energy and clinging red fruit character. This is already delicious, and delivers impressive depth and clarity for the price, especially for this often disappointing variety.
