Cape Mentelle Margaret River Cabernet Merlot 2016
A hedonistic blend reveals ripe black berries and red confection over choc mint and sweet spiced oak. Plump plums fill a soft palate that abounds with cassis and sweet cola flavours are supported by velvety cocoa flavoured tannins.
Brooding aromas of blackberry conserve, cassis and after dinner mints greet at first swirl. Underlying sweet liquorice, black olives and dark chocolate are moderated by subtle earthy notes.
Soft forest fruits fill a soft palate that abounds with cassis and sweet cola flavours. A silky mid palate is supported by velvety cocoa flavoured tannins and sweet spiced oak. A fruit forward number guaranteed to please.
