Deep violet in color, The Scooter offers a perfumed nose, intense with red fruits, cherries and plum. The rich fruit is followed by layers of spice, chocolate and wonderful fragrant oak. This wine is well balanced, round and giving, showing generous ripe fruit and soft tannins producing an outstanding Australian Merlot.
"Very deep garnet-purple colored, the 2010 The Scooter Merlot gives pronounced notes of warm plums, blackberry preserves, coconut and baking spices plus a whiff of toasty cedar. Ripe, concentrated and voluptuous in the mouth, it offers tons of vanilla and spice flavors, a medium level of velvety tannins, medium-high acid and a long finish. Drinking beautifully now, it should cellar to 2016+."
