Redman Cabernet Merlot 2010

I wish I was sitting in front of an open fire with this in hand. The fruit is wholesome and dense giving a warming embrace. The type you get from an old friend you haven't seen for a while.

A 55/45 blend, think black fruits, wallet leather, there's a neat waft of violets too. Oak has a presence but doesn't have too much clout. There's a persistence about it that makes it sit just about right. Those plum fruits aren't flashy but put the shoulder to the wheel and do the job driving through to a long finish.

Five years old and drinking really well and I reckon it will hang out for up to another ten. I'd happily have a couple of glasses of this, no sweat.

Very good.
