2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot
The lifted bouquet displays dark and red berry fruits with hints of dusty oak and cedar
The palate displays sweet dark and red berry fruit with earthy gravelly notes. Hints of graphite and bayleaf add a savoury element to the wine. The wine is rich and complex with great length and balance supported by fine-grained tannins and seamlessly integrated French oak.
Quality roasted, pan-seared or slow cooked meats. Beef is ideal, but duck, lamb or venison can be just as good. Crumbly aged cheddar and Manchego are great cheese pairings.
