2008 CABERNET MERLOT
A warmer than usual Autumn in 2008 produced delicious berries with concentrated flavours and resulted in a wine with generous overtones of ripe blackberries, mulberries and red fruit on the nose. A fleshy, soft wine with hints of allspice and bay leaf, the palate begins with plenty of fruit coupled with notes of dark, rich chocolate. Fine, powdery tannins throughout aid firm structure and complexity, whilst refined wood integration fills the supple palate. Terrific persistence and fine natural acidity make this delicious drinking which rewards some time in the glass.
50% Cabernet Sauvignon / 50% blend of Cabernet Franc and Merlot.
