Cabernet Merlot Trinders 2016
The Cabernet Merlot blend takes inspiration from the classic red wines of Bordeaux. Cape Mentelle has developed an international reputation for these varieties that are perfectly suited to the climate and soils of Margaret River.
This blend seeks to capture the depth and structure of Cabernet with the dark fruit and plush flavors of Merlot, small minor amounts of Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc complement the blend for a well-rounded, full and rich style with balance.
The Wine Front
This is pretty much spot on for a drink now (or later) Margaret Cabernet. Dark fruit, iodine and earth savoury edges, subtle vanilla oak and floral perfume. It’s medium bodied, supple and even in texture, with a density and presence, not least super drinking appeal that sets it above the pack. Oh, and the length is good too, with grainy tannin and fragrance lingering.
