2014 Cottle Bay Merlot
We're still not quite sure where Cottle Bay is (somewhere near Cottlesoe?) but it surely is the home of generous, easy-drinking wines. This Merlot fits that bill perfectly, a soft plummy red with no sharp edges and boatloads of generous fruit.
Soft blackberry aromas combine with strawberry and cherry notes, with subtle oak spice in the background. Rich plum with crimson hues. Medium bodied and soft, generous blackberry and cassis flavours combine with cherry and strawberry tones. The finish is with a stylish subtle vanilla, spiced element.
