Seailles, Cubik Rouge (2018). Cotes de Gascogne, France. Merlot.
An easy drinking wine that is nothing like the typical oaky, vanilla, super heavy Merlots of the region, but still retains a little of the rustic SW style. Vinification in porous concrete allows slow movement, producing something that is concentrated and deep. Bright and fleshy red fruit, plummy, typical Merlot forest fruit.
