2012 Paulett Wines Polish Hill River Cabernet Merlot

Cracka Rating

Cracka Review

If you like your cab merlots fuller-bodied and with a kick of oak, then this is the wine for you! Smells of dark fruits and plums lift from the glass, along with hints of pepper spice, licorice and toasted cedar, whilst the palate is fulsome and plummy flavoured, with a decent lick of toasty oak adding to the slight grip of the tannins, and a decent, earthy savoury finish. Some roast red meats will be ideal with this.

Expert Reviews

Campbell Mattinson (2012 Vintage) says
Fresher and cleaner than previous releases but still with plenty of fruit power. This serves a volume of blackberry, clove and mint flavour and then coats it all in smooth vanillin oak. Tannin framework is on the money too.
