Spice Route Merlot Swartland Flagship 1999

External Review by Shop Wine Direct:

Bright, saturated red-ruby. Raspberry, lead pencil and a whiff of greenbean on the nose. Shapely and juicy in the mouth, with good density and sweetness. Intriguing smoky/vegetal nuance. Finishes sweet, dusty tannins that increased with aeration.(Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar)
