Huntington Estate Special Reserve Merlot 2016


Big framed Merlot. Very much an 'old' style, that is, straight up and down with not too much variance. A bit like the old line and length Glenn McGrath used to bowl - reliable stuff.

It's a good drink but interest factor isn't really challenged. All the usual varietal characteristics raise their hand with the finish being dense and drying. A wine that would need food by its side - a roast or steak I'm thinking.

Drink now to eight years,

90/100
