Cooks Lot Allotment 8989 Cabernet Merlot 2016

Easy drinking and easy on the back pocket. Soft fruit and smooth edges highlight this release.



A few Cabernet Merlots were tasted blind and this shone like a star in the night's sky. Ripping value again from Duncan Cook - get on board!

Black fruits, black plums, tobacco leaf, dark chocolate plus charred beef are dusted with cinnamon and Christmas cake spices. A lick of mint comes late too. Fair weight through the mouth is balanced by good acid and an enjoyable length. You'd be a hard marker not to enjoy a glass or two. A bargain.

Drink now to six years.
