The Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot has a tremendous depth of colour with a vibrant ruby red rim. 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; these are classic Wilyabrup Cabernet descriptors there is also a subtle earthy spiciness provided by the addition of 21% Merlot. The palate is fresh yet concentrated, packed with dark fruits, bitter chocolate and subtle spicy French oak characters. The Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot has 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.
