Ken Forrester Petit Cabernet Sauvignon/Merlot 2009
Ken Forrester's "Petit" range offers friendly value wines, perfect for everyday drinking. This fresh, approachable Bordeaux blend is crafted in a soft, fruit-driven style. It's packed with rich flavors of ripe blackberries and plums and undertones of cigar box and spice, enhanced by smooth, fine-grained tannins.
Black currant leaf and juicy plum guts abound on the nose of this Bordeaux-style blend, and those aromas transition into the dominating flavors of the palate alongside suggestions of pepper and sweet smoked meat. Balanced, with fine tannins and a clean but lingering finish.
