Corbans Cottage Block Marlborough Cabernet Merlot

Expert Reviews

Michael Cooper (1996 Vintage) says
Released in 2002, the 1996 vintage is a mature red with a leathery, developed bouquet. A blend of 60 per cent Cabernet Sauvignon and 40 per cent Merlot, it was matured for 18 months in new and one-year-old French and American oak casks. An old-style New Zealand red, with a strongly herbal thread on the palate, it also has good flavour concentration and some fruit sweetness. Overall, however, it shows why Cabernet Sauvignon is no longer a major variety in Marlborough and struggles to justify its high price.
