2016 Cabernet Sauvignon/Merlot

$30Price

Dark, deep ruby-red colour with black hues and purple tints on the rim.  The nose is firm and well-concentrated with aromas of dark-red plum fruit entwined with blackberries and notes of blackcurrants melded with savoury dark herbs and iron-earth mineral suggestions.  Medium-full bodied and elegantly presented, the palate has a finely concentrated core of ripe blackcurrant and blackberry fruit, along with dark herbs and iron-earth notes.  The fruit is fresh and vibrant and supported by moderate, fine-grained tannin extraction and fresh acidity.  The palate flows with good energy and linearity, leading to an elegant finish of blackcurrants, plums and herbs.  This is a finely presented Cabernet and Merlot blend with plum, blackberry and blackcurrant fruit, freshness and elegant extraction.  Match with lamb and beef dishes over the next 5-6 years.  A blend of approx. 48% each of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, with 4% Syrah
