As Monthy Python put it: "...you malodourous, coffeynosed pervert!" This is not by any means smelly, but it is the coffey nosed pervert embodied as a wine. The finish is exactly like having just swallowed a big gulp of well roasted coffee. This wine poses as huge, but balances on the edge when it comes to filling up its imposed costume. Not really my cup of ... coffee, but still a fine 100% Merlot without (thankheavens) the dried raisins and figs that makes you instantly prefer having ... tea (or sax for that matter).
From glass btl at Madam Toki, Daikanyama, Tokyo.

Bouquet offers chambord, smoke, and fresh mint
Silky mouthfeel. Could be considered perfect. Medium weight with a balance of heat, acid, and a stiff dose of tannins to support the structure
Flavors include kale, beef jerky, and rose hips. Extremely savory. After some air and with food concentrated blackberry flavors come through.
Finish is 60+ seconds with tooth coating acidity and bitter tannins
Really impressive and balanced. Love it.
Tasted against the ahnfeldt 2005 merlot. The Bordeaux offered more dry focus and dusty savoriness while the Cali came across as a bit juicier and more concentrated. I slightly preferred the ahnfeldt but the two wines are both great and very different from each other.
