This is a very good merlot from Shaw Wines and the Canberra district. The aroma reminds of cedar, black fruits, dusty plums and soy. The palate continues the cedar character, but is balanced by ripe fruit and medium-long length on the finish. Approachable now, it should improve with a further five years in the cellar. Rating: Very Good. Abv: 14%. Price: $28. Website: shawwines.com.au. Source: Sample.
