Tasting Notes: This playful and cheerful blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon and 50% Monastrel is paired well with its equally playful marketing and branding. Released with three different labels, this wine is presented as a nicely balanced combination of fruit-forward aromas and flavours with light earth and mineral notes adding complexity. Blackberry, stewed plum, peat, menthol and dried rock characters galore framed by strong, rough tannins. Good weight and length add a welcomed counterpoint of refinement to the in-your-face, ultra-ripe fruit. Mouth-watering acidity keeps the dry palate fresh and helps make the wine very food-friendly. Drink now-2014.
