    The 2017 Redigaffi has a few surprises up its sleeve, the most unexpected of which are those floral aromas of rose and lavender that lift so gently from the bouquet. These are absolutely counterintuitive given the heat and power of this vintage. This Redigaffi is a delicate wine in terms of its aromatic display despite the density and extract that is delivered to the palate. It carries a touch of bitterness or tannic dryness on the close to go along with its 15.5% alcohol content. The mouthfeel is tight, focused and sharp. This is a really beautiful and interesting Merlot that skirts around the hot vintage, yet it ultimately leaves you with marked determination and bold fruit flavors.

    This is powerful, from the vanilla- and coconut-scented oak to the concentrated blackberry, black currant and fruitcake flavors to the muscular tannins that support it all. Notes of Mediterranean scrub and tobacco peek through on the long finish. Best from 2023 through 2035.
