RJ Vinedos 2006 Pasion 4 Merlot (Argentina)
This screwcap Merlot from Argentina started off very slowly, in fact it proved to be pretty harsh at first and I began to believe it was not going to get better - but 30 minutes later it began to wake up and show a nose of blackberry, blueberry and cocoa ... on the palate there was cassis, blueberry skin, dried blackberry and a subtle, enjoyable smoky-oaky finish. Goes to show you, sometimes all you need to do is give it some time and it'll opened nicely.
