Coliban Valley Merlot 2005

Coliban Valley is a small producer from the Heathcote region.  2005 was a good year in Heathcote.  Merlot is probably not the strong suit of the region, and it showed a little with this wine.  The wine has an aroma of mint, soy and red plums.  On the palate, there is a dried tea character, but with some pleasant fruit and length.  Overall, a pleasant wine to drink now.  82 to 83 points. (6.7-6.8/10)

Abv: 13%
Price: $20 (current vintage)
