Description
About The Wine
 
This awesome oaked Margaret River Limited Release Cabernet Merlot 2010 was basket pressed and matured in French oak for 3 years!! The wine is very rich and smooth with intense flavours of plum and rum and raisin. It is a full bodied and very rich red wine. A spectacular aged Cabernet Merlot.  
 
 
Comments from Wine Buyer Steve:
 
All I can say is WOW!! When this sample arrived, I was a bit apprehensive as it is a Cabernet Merlot with 10 years under its belt! I was very pleasantly surprised. It is a very rich and full-bodied red with magnificent oak flavours and dark forest berries. This is a red to enjoy with a good steak or a rich pasta dish. Stunning! This is exceptional value at $20.00 per bottle as the winery sells it under brand at $35.00 per bottle.

A dry, full bodied style with ripe tannins and rich, layered dark fruit. A very approachable wine that has plenty of fruit intensity and warmth. The flavours are reminiscent of spicy fruit cake and plum pudding.
