MR BARVAL CABERNET MERLOT 2015

2015 Cab Merlot - 96pts: The wine's of this stable are all unadulterated: either adjusted, tweaked in any fashion, nor fined/filtered. Given the impeccable winemaking, the calling card of the range is one of texture: sensitive oak as an adjunct and little more; but more so, joyous, vivid, detailed grape tannins that draw the saliva and make one, time and time again, return to the glass. The acid, too, is a natural free-flow. In this case, across pastille, dark cherry, cassis and sage notes, all drawn across cabernet's stiff upper lip of astringency.
