I know I sound like a ponce, but this isn’t as good as the 2009 (I think it was the 2009). Its still one of my favourite Merlots though. Ballsy, rich and classy, like Jordan, but with class. Smells like a library (a rich man’s library, not a piss-stained tramp-filled public library) and tastes like raspberries. My old man loves it, and he’s drunk more wine than Oliver Reed.
