2006 Herold Outeniqua Merlot 82+ Points

Ripe plums, dark cherries, lead pencil and cedar wood complexities and dusty oak character, delicate fruit, but lacking a bit of body, as well as a tad too much oak, hence shadowing delicate fruit and Merlot pulp, slight unripe character.
With a little less extraction and may be older wood could wellturn out to be a beaufiful Merlot, with the benefit of vine ageing, it is to be followed, Now until 2011.
