Mr Mick Cabernet Merlot 2014

Jeez, cracker on the aromatics here. What you want in a youthful, fruitful Cab blend: Plum, cassis, throw in a little violet and a suggestion of mint.

Medium bodied, the playful fruit and mint make themselves known again, kind of an easy going languid vibe to this. Depth is added via some coffee and mocha notes that provide a little bite on the back palate. 

Crazy that a $17 buck wine is released as a 4 year old. That's not a slight on its joyous, youthful stance and freshness that it still delivers. 90 

Tasted on: Thursday 15th March, a Root to Flower day
