  Cabernet Merlot
Deep ruby red in colour with purple nuances. The bouquet displays aromas of ripe cherry, blackberry fruit, balanced vanilla, smoke and toasty oak spice. In the mouth the wine is full-bodied, rich and rounded with a pure fruit core of cherry and cassis framed by supple tannins, and buttery oak. The finish is long and dry. Drinking well now, but will improve and mellow over the next 5-10 years.

Deep, dense red/purple in colour. The bouquet displays aromas of wild blackberry and blueberry, plum overlaid with vanilla. On the palate the wine is full-bodied but soft with rounded texture and a long, dry finish. Flavours include blueberries and black currant mingled with cedar and vanilla spice. Drinking well now, but will improve and soften over the next 3-5 years.
