2008 Patina Jezza Cabernet Merlot (member only)

$85.00

Still enjoying life greatly, with fragrant berry aromas, the palate with excellent balance and length; once again, cassis does most of the talking, but fine-grained tannins and cedary oak lift and lengthen the finish. (Log on to your member account here to purchase, Limit 4 bottles)

Description

Colour: Dark ruby red in colour.

Aroma: Floral notes, ripe plum, blackberry dark cherry, chocolate and well integrated toasted oak.

Palate: The palate is mouth filling yet elegant with up front ripe berry, dark cherry and plum flavours. It is a well structured wine with subtle integrated oak, soft tannins, and a long back palate.

Winemaking: The grapes were crushed then cold soaked to extract dark berry flavours before being fermented in vat.   It was pressed off skins during late ferment and aged in new and old French oak along with one new American barrel – just to add a little interest.

Cellaring: This wine has intensity of fruit and tannin along with freshness that will enable it to age very well.  It is drinking well now and should continue to cellar well for another three to five years.
