88 points "Tasting Notes: The Oldfield Series Merlot has a stunning nose of dark berries, cherry, slate, gravel, savoury herbs and coffee with big oak and vanilla latte notes. The palate offers well structured, smooth and slightly green tannins with classic dark fruit flavours. The texture is first juicy and up front and then chalky and mischievous. Patient decanting will help bring out more layers of complexity revealing more earthy notes along with French oak and bitter chocolate flavours. A full bodied wine with good concentration. Balance leans towards hot alcohol with a touch of lingering spice. Excellent pairing for dark chocolate or enjoy on its own. " Best 2011-2014
