Full body, ultra-fine and firm tannins and a beautiful fruit and mineral undertone. Tight and substantial. So layered. Another example of finesse and beauty here with this pure merlot. Better in 2018.

The quality is outstanding and the Merlot grape offers a heightened sense of sharpness and focus in a slightly cooler vintage such as this. Galatrona exhibits a plush and rich bouquet that is embellished with soft cherry and blackberry nuances followed by spice, sweet tobacco, chocolate and crushed granite. The wine is amply fleshed out and generous. It offers an incredible sense of overall balance and irresistible drinking pleasure. - Monica Larner

A lush, fruity style, this red features cherry, raspberry, vanilla, toast and leather flavors. Needs to absorb the oak and find equilibrium on the long finish, where a mineral element emerges. Merlot. Best from 2018...   A lush, fruity style, this red features cherry, raspberry, vanilla, toast and leather flavors. Needs to absorb the oak and find equilibrium on the long finish, where a mineral element emerges. Merlot. Best from 2018 through 2025. 250 cases imported. –BS
