Winemaker thoughts:

4.17 – The Merlot 2001 is in the Heavy weight category in my opinion, and is very special.
It is different to its older siblings in its complexity of taste. The wine aged
in the bottle for 13 years and is suitable for consumption now, or it can be
aged for a further of 2-3 years.
