2010 Merryvale Cabernet Sauvignon Oak Knoll, 1.5L
100% Cabernet Sauvignon
The wine shows classic Cabernet Sauvignon aromas of plum, cassis, and raspberry along with hints of pie cherry, cedar, sandalwood, graphite, and vanilla. The palate is lively, showing an attractive blend of fruit and spice, finishing with fine-grained dusty tannin. A nod to those who prefer their Cabernets on the more classic, slightly lower alcohol side. This wine is accessible in its youth, particularly with a short decant, but has the structure to age ten or more years from vintage date.
