Good, but II was expecting more

Even after nine years, this wine is very tannic. I fear it has far too much wood (although I understand Merlin has reduce barrel ageing, thankfully), which battles the Gamay fruit. It is tasty but, at least at this stage, the balance seems wrong. I am afraid the tannin may well end up overwhelming the fruit.
