West Cape Howe Cabernet Merlot 2017

Part of West Cape Howe’s “Cape to Cape” entry level range that punch well above their weight. Packaged in Lean & Green lightweight glass. 95% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Merlot from Mount Barker and Frankland River.

West Cape Howe, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Western Australia, 2017

A perfunctory medium garnet hue in the glass. Subdued mulberry leading to blackberry with earthier tones of red capsicum, fresh leather, milk chocolate and a little cedary French oak spice. Just medium bodied and thin fruit wrapped around an almost fragile structure that offers minimal grip through fine tannins. Pleasant enough and serviceable for pizza/pasta night.

RRP $17
Alc: 13.5%
Rating: 16/20
