Bakkheia Cabernet Merlot 2012

Unreleased as yet, I can see why, struck me as being a touch raw initially, green and herbal with some stalkiness against new oak. A 60/40 of the two listed varieties.

Day two a different picture, coming together nicely, resolved with generous character of bay with good black fruit character in support.

Smooth, polished, squarely medium bodied. Showing mulberry, touch of plum and cedary spice. Really grew in stature, unfurling and gaining length. 89+

Tasted on: Sunday 17th August, a Fruit to Root day 
Source: Sample
Price: $ n/a - not released yet
Alcohol: 13%
