Boschendal Merlot 1997

This rich, dark, medium-full wine has a youthful purple rim and hints of cedar, red berry fruit, chocolate and coffee on the nose. Well-balanced, with firm tannins, it has a generous mouthfeel and lingering aftertaste. Enjoy with chicken liver pâté, roast duck, lamb and cheese.
