Hardys Regional Reserve Merlot 2003 (Australia) [Jan. 24th, 2005|03:07 am]
[Tags|, ]

This deep fuschia Merlot is young and smells like dark chocolate and strawberries preserves, and maybe a little brown sugar. It has a very soft oak touch and is smooth and easy. Couldn't be easier, I'd say. It reminds me of the powder on Japanese nama choco fresh chocolate. I like it.

Of the cheap Australians I brought home from my last trip, this is the clear winner. I'm so glad we had this one last.
