Eaton Merlot Malbec Cabernet 2015 Marlborough
Savoury, earthy, fruity and quite complex with aromas of tobacco, bell-pepper, plum, black currant and chocolate. Plenty of other wood-like aromas with a dried vanilla and clove layer. On the palate – dry, flavours reflect the bouquet along with wood spices, brown kitchen spices, plenty of tannins and acidity to match. Youthful still with plenty of energy and vibrato. Best from late 2018 through 2026.
