The Liberator Episode 24 - Four and Twenty Blackbirds Merlot

Episode 24 - Four and Twenty Blackbirds Merlot

This gorgeously mature Merlot reflects Rick’s lifelong obsession with blackbirds. Sounds random? Maybe less so when you know that the word ‘Merlot’ derives from Bordelais patois meaning little blackbird.

The wine itself has aged gracefully over its decade in bottle. The nose shows cocoa, spice and savoury notes. The palate treads a very interesting line between layered plum/blueberry fruit and mature meaty flavours. The tannins are soft, supple and sophisticated. If this were from Bordeaux you’d easily pay double the price for it.
