Douglas Green Merlot 2003

Colour: Dark ruby of medium depth with a bright strawberry edge.
Nose: Pleasant complexity of ripe black cherry and plum fruit aromas layered by earthy mineral and spice nuances.
Palate: A soft lush juicy smooth entry with cranberry and ripe red cherry flavours supported by firm yet friendly tannins and slick oak integration with a well balanced long aftertaste of coffee & plums.
Overall: A medium to full bodied Merlot of pleasing intensity with a smooth soft nature making it accessible early although well supported by firm ripe tannins that provide the structure for further development.

Smoked meat and game dishes, full flavoured chicken casseroles, cottage pie, vegetarian lasagne and bacon quiche.
