Balnaves Cabernet Merlot 1999

Nicely aged Coonawarra cabernet

Reviewed by nicholas.enge_19549 - Sunday 29 May 2011 08:38 PM

Nicely aged Coonawarra cabernet. 95% cab and 5% merlot. Appealing reddish purple colour. Quite an oaky nose, earthy and leafy too, with a hint of black fruit. Tastes mostly of blackcurrant and American oak, also of mint, fruit cake, coffee, and savoury meatiness. Tannins have integrated, good balance. Drying finish. Drank best after an hour in the decanter.
