    Winemaker's Notes:

    Deep red in color with a crimson hue. Rich, concentrated blackcurrant, violets, bay leaf and dried twigs with hints of mocha, menthol and graphite that are perfectly framed by the subtle spicy, vanillin French oak. Enters the mouth rich and seductive, with a mixture of blackcurrant, bay leaf and chocolate dust then bursts to life with an explosion of tangy, bright acidity. It finishes fragrant, long and full of superb, fine, structured, dry tannins.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The hue is good, although is on the light side; the bouquet is fragrant, yet not especially powerful; it is on the palate that the intensity and length of the fruit takes no prisoners, blackcurrant/cassis, squeaky tannins and a spicy/savoury edge all adding interest and impact.

    This wine's generous cassis flavors reveal an underlying herbal character, like the scent of a coastal forest. The texture is gentle, as smooth as silk, the wine feeling both skinny and round. Completely approachable, delicious to drink as a young Cabernet, this has some peppercorn tension in its tannins that will keep it fresh as it develops in the bottle.

    Wine & Spirits

    Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2009 Cabernet Merlot gives pronounced cassis, blackberry and mulberry notes over pencil lead, Provence herbs and black olives. Full bodied with plenty of clean, expressive fruit, it has a medium to firm level of grainy tannins, crisp acid and a long blackberry laced finish. Drinking now, it should cellar to 2016.
