Tilia Merlot 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

"The 2011 Tilia Merlot undergoes a 20-day skin maceration and is aged in oak for six to nine months. It has a lovely nose, one of the best I have found for this varietal, with vibrant dark cherry, black plum and mineral notes. The palate is well-balanced with fine tannins. It is very pure, with crisp dark plum, tar and a savory edge on the finish. This is how Argentinean Merlot should be done. Superb. Drink now-2018...91" WA 10/12

A wonderful bouquet of sweet spices, then rich and generous from the start with plenty of black cherry on blueberry, with the only flaw being a touch of bitterness on the finish – another good effort from this up-and-coming producer. (AV 86, http://argovino.com/?p=273)

Medium-bodied and plummy, with spice and wild herb accents to the moderate fruit character. Drink now.
