Burrowing Owl Merlot 750ml
This wine launches with a complex nose combining the fruitiness of ripe black cherry, black plum, blueberry and blackberry with interesting savoury notes. There is smoke, dark chocolate, pastry crust, bacon, cinnamon, vanilla and clove along with a subtle violet floral note. The palate is full bodied with mixed red and black berries, plum, paprika and dried sage with a long finish. The savoury tannins should allow this wine to mature well and gain further elegance and complexity over the next 6 to 8 years.
Food Pairing Notes
Pair with spice dusted flank steak or chicken thighs stuffed with dried black olives and garlic.
