McLeish Estate Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot 2010

A good value Cabernet Merlot blend. Both varieties not hugely successful in the Hunter but work well here.

Plenty of dark and black fruit. A slight whiff of cardamom spice in there too.

Nice use of oak with 30% being new French oak. Well balanced and highlighted by juicy plum and blackberry flavours. The soft finish lends itself to a range of foods

Have in the three to five years.

Available online or cellar door only.
