2016 Merchant Cabernet Sauvignon
Standing at 6ft 7in, Primo Carnera was the tallest ever World Heavyweight Boxing Champion when crowned in 1933. In the 1950s, Giovanni was surprised by an impromptu visit from the Ambling Alp; sparking a lifelong friendship.
Aromas of mulberry, blackcurrant and mint with a nicely integrated toasty French oak lift. Flavours are dominated by blackcurrant and berries. Complexity comes from dark chocolate and toast. The tannins are long and supportive of the flavours with a gentle, persistent finish.
Drink now or cellar for 8+ years.
