An excellent example of what Merlot can achieve in Australia; it's delicate and cheeky, modest yet persistent. With youthful aromas evoking a Persian market of spices and fruits, the adventure continues as the tannins begin to unfold, beginning with black tea leaf and moist earth moving toward sweet pipe tobacco. Approachable and enjoyable now, depth and complexity will emerge as this wine evolves over time.

Fragrant and expressive, offering mocha-laced maraschino cherry, framboise and raspberry flavors, with details of dried sage and tobacco on a plush, velvety frame. Delivers wonderful presence and harmony on the finish, where the tannins provide appealing traction. Drink now through 2033. 748 cases made, 398 cases imported.

One of the best Merlots I've tasted from Australia, Hickinbotham's 2016 The Revivalist Merlot does hint at cherry tomatoes, cedar and vanilla on the nose, but it nails the mouthfeel. It's medium to full-bodied, with a rich, velvety texture and layers of cherry and mocha flavors that linger into the long, plush finish.
