2013 “The Dogwalk” Cabernet Merlot

Colour

Deep red

Aroma

Attractive aromas of red currant, dark cherry and spice, with a just a touch of damp undergrowth. The subtle French oak is as much in the background as the fruit is in the foreground.

Palate

A medium bodied palate displaying fine, silky tannins, balanced acidity and barely perceptible oak. The red and black currant flavours are rich, long and juicy.

Summary

A good wine from a challenging red vintage in Clare. Makes a nice drink now for such a young wine, but will take 3-5 years cellaring easily. Try this wine with Chinese style bbq beef ribs.
