Flametree, Cabernet Merlot 2014
The Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot has classic varietal Cabernet fruit characteristics and fine ripe tannins. The nose is classically aromatic, showing cassis, violets and blackberry, balanced with notes of freshly dusted cocoa and dark chocolate. There is also a subtle earthy spiciness provided by the addition of Merlot. The palate is fresh yet concentrated, packed with dark fruits, bitter chocolate and subtle spicy French oak characters. A juicy mouth feel, with fine tannins and a long savoury finish. Aged in tight grained quality French oak barrels for fourteen months, the oak has pulled the fruit into line and provided the framework for this classic Margaret River Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot.
