Helen & Joey Estate Alena Cabernet Merlot 2014

Top gear. Delightful drinking.

Pour a glass and roasted peppers, charred meats, paprika, black currants and pencil shaving aromas all spill out. The leafiness of Cabernet still rings true too.

Super smooth in the mouth, it only carries 13% alcohol, medium bodied deliciousness. Dark berries loom large with cranberries lining the flank only daring to speak. I'd love to see this in five years time.

Generous and elegant, a most enjoyable drop. I'd go here again, no question.

Drink now but will cellar long term.

Very good.
