Villa Russiz Merlot Collio Graf de la Tour 2009

Member Review by Christy Canterbury MW:

This Merlot is a bit stubborn about releasing its aromas, but it responds well to decanting. I suggest two hours if you have them and can resist sipping that long. Unusual for varietal Merlot, which tends to linger in the red fruit zone, there are blackberry and black currant aromas here. The tannins caress and the acidity is quite tame for Friuli. Drink now to 2016.

Dark purple in colour with a refined and generous bouquet of graphite, cedar box, cherries, vanilla, raisins and plums. Full bodied with chocolate and plum flavours coming through on the palate, concentrated and still tannic but that should ebb away. Mouth filling and big, yet elegant with some acidity but good balance. Enjoyable. 92 Points
