Easy does it here. Flavour forward comforting, comfortable blend. Pencilly and woody Cabernet with plenty of blackberry, bramble and toothpaste mint over plum jam and vanilla bean paste. Toasty, mocha oak and a little dash of umami soy/stock. Medium full: the tannins grind through their gears giving drive to the minty black fruit. There’s a little charm and decent balance, but nothing to overthink.

RRP: $20
Alc: 14%
Rating: 17.25/20 (88/100)
