Moss Wood Ribbonvale Merlot (Margaret River,WA)
The colour is bright, deep brick red.
On the nose there are delicate aromas of cherries, roses and blackberries and layers of complexity made up of spice, cedar and tar.
There follows a juicy, firm palate with bright dark fruit notes of cherry and blackberry, sitting over a well-balanced structure. The acidity is high and tannins are concentrated and firm but the texture is silky smooth and gives the wine good length.
