Cabernet Merlot 2004
This is a voluptuous, silky wine with plenty of blackcurrant and mint. The palate is mouth-filling and flavoursome with soft, velvety tannins.Download Full Winemaker Note
A medium bodied wine with a purple red colour complimented by a youthful hue at release.
The bouquet has hints of chocolate, mocha and fruit aromas of mint and berry. Complex characters of tobacco and cedar are present and will develop further with careful cellaring.
The palate is generously flavoured with layers of fruit and oak complexity. Mint and berry fruits are evident, as are chocolate and coffee flavours from oak maturation. The palate has a mellow, soft richness giving a velvety warm feel. The finish demonstrates persistent elegant tannins of Cabernet Sauvignon.
Ready for immediate enjoyment however with careful cellaring will develop further to 2008, possibly longer.
