The Lane Block 1 Cabernet Merlot 2013

A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (87%) and Merlot (13%) - good aromatics on show, tobacco and green olive; oak is on show and a good portion of new it would seem.     

Plenty of cherry and plum on show here. Strikes this lovely balance of vibrant fruit against an elegance. Savoury elements in the mix, good acidic reach. Tannin is fine - drinks very well, would like more structure. 

Reasonable length: cassis, fruits of the forest compote. Decent. 90 

Tasted on: Wednesday 22nd June, a Fruit to Root day
