Grove Estate Wherehaveyou Bin MCB

An easy drinking, savoury blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Barbera.  The wine in glass had me feeling pleasantly schizophrenic, offering in turn Merlot plumminess with Cabernet blackcurrant and cedary notes.  In the background there further lurked some ripe fruit notes from the Barbera and even a touch of mint sauce.

Entry immediately showed a smooth, medium bodied wine.  There wasn't much fruit showing in the palate, yet some oak provided some interest.  On the finish, there was some good mouth coating tannin, a hint of coffee-ish oak - this all fell away rather quickly.  Made for drink now pleasure indeed.

  1. As an easy drinking table wine, I really like this. If you go direct to the winery they'll let you have a case for just $100, which for me then makes it a great value purchase on the under $10/bottle range.
