Winesmiths Cabernet Merlot 2020

A fresh blend of declassified fruit and some select growers/vineyards from the house of Yalumba comes this Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot blend.

Winesmiths, Cabernet Merlot, South Australia, 2020

Rich and fragrant. Blackberry fruit with leafy bramble and brown spiced plummy Merlot fruit. Some pencilly graphite giving spine and a touch of old leather couch. Plump and plush dark berry fruit (almost clarity of big mulberry berries) that comes through somewhat easy and simple. The tannin structure is sour, firm and flat, giving a hard edge to an otherwise appealing palate. Stays somewhat light/mid weight through the finish when it could be easily dragged down by expectation,

: $13.99 (2 Litres)
Alc: 13%
Rating: 16.5/20 (86/100)
