Willow Bridge Dragonfly Cabernet Merlot 2014

Winemaker, the late Simon Burnell, professed his Dragonfly 2013 was the best Cab Merlot in Australia under twenty bucks. I was dubious until the sample arrived. He was right I must say and this has followed on from it well. Despite going up two bucks since, if you had to pay an extra ten you'd still be grinning from ear to ear.

Juicy black fruits bust a move here. There's a youthful energy about it which is hard to ignore. Varietal capsicum fades in but the shimmy across the floor from the savoury herbs and bitter dark chocolate add shine to a great little wine. Juicy and dusty tannins and a long finish wrap it up.

A bargain deluxe and certainly worth tracking down.

Very good.
