Intense aromas of dark berries, chocolate, barrel spices, dark plum, blackberry, cassis, clove and violets. Youthful, fresh, ripe, spicy and complex. On the palate – youthful, tense and ripe and with intensity – ripe red berry fruits, plum and baked goods, chocolate and sweet tobacco, violets and toasty barrel baking spices. Firm, ripe tannins and plenty of acidity provide a strong foundation for the core of fruit. A lovely example ready to drink if decanted with best drinking from 2023 through 2033+.

The Chatterer Merlot Cabernets
This wine is deep in colour with a layered fragrant nose of ripe plum and cassis with lifted vanilla, cedar and tobacco notes.
The palate has a rich velvet texture with excellent stucture, ripe black fruits and cassis flavours with long full finish.
Great cellaring wine for up to five years.
