Sotheby's: Saint-Emilion 2017 Review

Merlot was born here, and this bottle provides one of the purest expressions of the grape without you having to spend the full kitty. It is elegant, young, and fruit forward. There are aromas that will remind you of a forest in Autumn as the leaves change, and the concentration of cranberries and cherries. The palate has a nice pop of cola (like cherry cola) and a well balanced tannin structure gripping your palate with a gentle release. Wine Lovers, this is Merlot.
