Garagiste Merricks Pinot Noir 2021Regular price $47.00
I really like this wine, there are interesting floral aromas that wrap around vague hints of amaro and (oxidised) maraschino cherry.
The palate offers truckloads of cherries both red and black, there is an ethereal lightness to the palate which works well with the earthy herbal finish. Great length and good acid.
My recommendation is a year in the cellar and a nice pat on the back after.
"This is a beautiful and pretty damn serious Pinot! Really, really fine on both the nose and palate, with red and dark cherries, subtle nettle and classy oak spice notes. The palate is beautifully pitched with the same characters as the nose, a superb powdery structure and a twist of iodine on the perfumed finish. A bargain."
