2017 St Ignatius Magnum in Wooden box

Relative to past years, the 2017 St Ignatius justified a higher than usual percentage of Merlot. Merlot’s mid-palate sweetness comes through on this wine superbly, balancing the edginess of Cabernet in a cool year. The aroma is complex and ethereal with a host of flavours vying for dominance – violets, plum, blackberry, cedar, herb and sarsaparilla! The palate is silky. Sweet plum fruit on the middle finishing with dark blackberry and chocolate. Fine tannins wrap everything up and leave the palate fresh.
