Teira Merlot 2013 75cl
Velvety plum nose. Richly ripe fruit that envelops you in a bear hug of warmth and deep-pile, slightly scratchy (but in a comfortable, real-wool kind of way) tannins. Really delicious, all that plummy fruit well-contoured by firm acidity. Not a green mean note in sight but standing well clear of jammy over-hung thickness. Excellent balance and delivering a whack of pleasure.
