Castle Rock Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot 2010


Ripe cherry, cassis and garden herbs arise from the glass with milk chocolate oak adding sweet spice aromas to the equation. The palate comes alive with sweet fruit countered with tobacco and tapenade savouriness along the long length. Castle Rock has imbued this classic blend with elegance. Drink it now or put some down in the cellar over the next five years. It is a wine that easily transforms from a couch companion to a stylish dinner companion.

Date:  June 2014   Price:  $20  Value: $$$   Drink: 3 – 5 years
