2019 Cabernet Merlot
Deep yet bright mulberry purple in colour, this Hunter Cabernet – Merlot is a charmer.
The aromas show loads of energy, with 80% Cabernet Sauvignon providing fresh florality, opening with briarberry and raspberry. These perfumes open out to deeper signatures of crème cassis and mint, plus subtle background support of vanilla and menthol from fine French oak.
Cabernet is supreme on the palate too, delivering long, focussed flavours of raspberry and cranberry with hints of olive.
20% Merlot contributes roundness and depth throughout, with spiced plum silkiness that adds body and softness onto the finish. Tannins are powder-soft, showing the plush satin-like harmony of deluxe French barrel.
This elegantly structured blend is definitely a keeper, and will take several years of cellaring to open out. Decanting is ideal if drinking earlier.
