Voyager Estate Girt by Sea Cabernet Merlot 2012

A price increase on the 2011, and one that - in my mind at least - turns this from a sub-$25 go-to, to a nudging $30 and will require a bit more thought as to its purchase.

Classic aromas here: tobacco, chocolate, berry fruit, bay and a dusting of cedar and seasoning. How could you not?

Medium of body, ease of approach - plushly textured with silken tannin entwined with a fair amount of fruit. Some structure holds things up, seems so effortless. Again it has the potential to cellar for up to ten years, but why would you? 91
