Redman Wines Cabernet Merlot 2013


Here's one for the lovers of the great old Cabernet Merlot blend - and the Redman's have nailed it. One for the black book.


Generous and seductively smooth - dive right in.

The two fruit parcels were co-fermented before spending two years in two and three year old oak. Danny Redman proudly tells me the 2010 was their most successful wine produced, perhaps this may surpass it.

Dripping in plums and dark fruits, there's a good whiff of tobacco leaf and faint mint. Already in a good place on opening, it chillaxed further more with time in the glass. Cassis shoulders its way forward tied together by charming cedar oak. Fine tannins seal the deal - a classy wine all round.

Drinking well now but will cellar comfortably for another eight years.
