Juniper Crossing Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot, Margaret River, Western Australia, 2014
Cabernet Sauvignon 50%, Merlot 37%, Cabernet Franc 7%, Malbec 5%, Petit Verdot 1%. 14 Months in French oak barrels.
This medium-bodied wine has a bright, fruit driven style. Vibrant ruby red in colour, with aromas of mulberry, blackcurrant, raspberry, cherry and a hint of plum appearing first on the nose followed by background suggestions of vanilla, spice and chocolate from the French oak. The palate is refined with a wonderful array of red and black berry flavours; fine, powdery tannins support the palate, with biscuity oak, and cassis flavours on the finish.
A great match with a roast leg of lamb with garlic and herbs.
