Leeuwin Estate Prelude Vineyards Cabernet Merlot 2012

A pretty straight blend of Cabernet (80%) and Merlot (20%).

Good quality Cabernet leads with this number: a little plum, dusty cedar, a little tobacco.

Fine, medium bodied wine on entry; layered blackcurrant, a little coffee and vanilla in the mix. Tannin is fine grained, graphite like mineralogy. Superb length, fine lingering tannin. 91

Tasted on: Saturday 2nd July, a Root day
