Moss Wood Ribbon Vale 2019 Merlot – Gary Walsh, The Wine Front
Olive leaf, cedar, mint, nutty with black and red fruit. It’s savoury, quite leafy, with a slight honey flavour in with the mixed berry fruit, light grainy tannin, a bit of oak bobbing up, and an olive laced finish of solid length. A more savoury expression of Merlot, perhaps a bit lacking in mid-palate and richness, but a nice wine all the same.
