100% Merlot

95 Points from James Suckling

A young red with so much decadent meat and ripe fruit character. Very smoky. Full body, beautifully rich, velvety tannins and an incredible depth of fruit. This goes on for minutes. Pure merlot. Best ever from here.

 

Winemaker Notes

Lamaione 2009 is endowed with a very intense, impenetrable ruby-red. It opens with spicy notes of ginger and blueberryjam followed bycroissant, vanilla and cocoa. These are joined at the finish by aromas of tar, liquorice and gunpowder. In the mouth the very fine tannin texture is opulent and silky with a persistent finish.

 

Food Pairings

Slow-cooked dishes such as pot roasts marinated in the same wine, mushroom-enriched stews, or beef fillet. Enjoy it too with medium-aged cheeses.
