Ken Forrester Merlot Stellenbosch 2007

Member Review by Mike Madaio:

One of the more interesting Merlots I've come across. A ton of weird, wacky stuff here. The 15% Cab Franc really comes across on the nose, with lots of veggies in the bouquet. There's an intriguing minty aspect across the mid-palate, and an intense, lingering smokiness on the finish.
