Mount Rozier Julian Merlot

2004 Mount Rozier Julian Stellenbosch Merlot 78 Points

Brick red with a touch of copper hue, meaty gamey, showing tertiary character along with notes of cigar and tobacco, notes of “Bovril / Marmite”, dark chocolate, earthy, complex, but varnish nose distract, delicate ripe tannins, shows maturation, too evolved for further ageing.
