McPherson Family Series Cabernet Merlot

Cracka Rating

Cracka Review

This wine is not rocket science, it's just a highly slurpable drink that would go well with the mid-week spag bog. Aromas of fleshy dark fruits, dried herbs and soft colve spice jump out of the galss, whilst the palate is medium to fuller-bodied, with soft plummy flavours, friendly tannins, a lick of toasty oak, and a smooth, dry finish.

Winemaker's Notes

This wine is a dense inky-purple colour with an enticing nose displaying aromas of ripe blackberries and cassis with a slight hint of capsicum. The palate is elegantly structured with fruit intensity, integrated spicy oak and above all, finesse.

A classic partner for grilled rib eye served with a pepper sauce. McPherson Cabernet Merlot also pairs well with rich tomato based pasta dishes.

WINESTATE (2010 Vintage) says
Estery, fresh, fruit-driven nose and sweet, minty palate with balance and structure. Needs time.

James Halliday (2010 Vintage) says
Light, bright purple-red; if you really wish to taste (and drink) cabernet merlot, and are happy with a light-bodied wine, you can't miss this. Its red berry fruit is the core, but there are slightly savoury foresty characters to take the wine into light food territory. And you don't have to wait for it, least of all cellar it.
