Planeta Merlot Sicilia IGT 2002

External Review by Prestige Wine & Spirits:

I was knocked-out by the remarkable 1999 Merlot, a multi-layered, explosively ripe effort exhibiting aromas and flavors of espresso, black cherry jam, chocolate, and mocha. It is rich, full-bodied, and seamless with obvious toasty oak as well as admirable length and individuality. Consume it over the next 10-12 years.

Very plummy with lovely blackberry and olive aromas and flavors. Full-bodied, with a round and velvety texture and a long, long finish. Lovely. Best after 2005.
