Desejo Merlot 2007

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Coffee bean, black plum, deep, carob, herbal, black raspberry, clear and fresh with lovely herbal and floral, almost iris base notes, rich on entry, soft, a bit more dried fruit character than with the Volpi, very broad on the palate, though remaining transparent, this has really vivid coffee, chocolate and carob accents over the core of plummy, slightly pruny fruit, finishes with a dusting of wood tannin adding a little mouth grab and lingering boysenberry fruit, quite bordelaise, black cherry works it's way into the backend, the finish shows a lovely set of almost stemmy notes adding complexity and a little chewy black cherry skin. 89pts

Vintage: 2005 04/21/2010

Intensives Dunkelrot mit violetten Reflexen. Komplexe Noten von Vanille und Kokosnuss. In der Nase feines Bouquet nach Tabak und Pfeffer. Konzentrierte Struktur, sanft und elegant im Gaumen. Angenehmer Abgang mit einem Nachhall von roten Früchten. Grilladen, Gerichten mit rotem Fleisch und Pasta.
