Alkoomi White Label Cabernet Merlot 2017

Black fruit leads with doughy, nigh fudgey oak character. Hints of seasoning add to that - giving overall appeal of a crowd pleasing. easy going red.

Fairs better on the palate, the fruit being more prominent, over tobacco and leaf, albeit with an astringent, bittering. 

That is an aspect that forms the lasting impression of the wine, sadly. 86
