(94-95) A juicy and rich red with plum and cherry character. Medium to full body, soft tannins and a pretty finish. Very fine and polished. Lovely length. A blend of merlot, cabernet sauvignon and petit verdot.

Medium in body and persistent, with striking poise, Orma is absolutely gorgeous in 2016. All the elements simply fall into place effortlessly. Deceptively in its mid-weight feel, the 2016 offers striking persistence and tons of class. -- Antonio Galloni

The mouthfeel is rich and thickly textured. The wine produces notes of green olive, black olive, caper and smoke. The blend here is 50% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon and 20% Cabernet Franc. This is a powerful wine with 15% alcohol that underlines its potency. Some 30,000 bottles were made - ML
