2015 Winemakers Selection Cabernet Merlot – Huon Hooke (January 2020)

Deep colour with vestiges of purple, the bouquet rich and cabbish with violets and a vein of green leafy herbaceousness. A trace of capsicum. The wine has bright acidity and bold berry fruit in the mid-palate, the tannins present but fine and mild. It has some greener notes but is a very pleasing drop of cabernet. Drink to 2028.
