TarraWarra Estate K Block Merlot 2014

If you asked me to recommend a Merlot I'd have no hesitation and head to this K Block every time. But this 2014 just seems a little off the pace compared to previous years.

Sure it looks the goods in the glass, but it just seems to lack the get up and go I was expecting.

Blackcurrant, dense plum, earth and savoury herbs. Fruit delivery is ok but the acid keeps nipping at me to the point it just doesn't want to relax and move on. Given time it will settle, mind you it was a little more relaxed on the second day of tasting, but for now it's still not quite right. Time will tell I guess.

89/100 - Good+
