2006 Patina Cabernet Merlot

$35.00

Tasting Note

This is a truly remarkable wine and I have been swaying back and forth between releasing it as Cabernet Merlot versus my signature red blend “Jezza” label.

44% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot, 12% Shiraz, 4% Cabernet Franc

The various components of this blend were all separately fermented and matured in French and American oak barrels, then blended according to taste.

I think this wine has quite a bit of life left and may be a real treasure in twenty years… but you can also turn a potentially average evening into “WOW” if you drag it out of your cellar tonight.

Tasting Notes

Colour: Red with a little brick red around the edges of the glass.

Aroma: A very complex and developed nose including ripe plum, black currant, blackberry, olives, licorice, leafy, minty and even some floral notes with very well integrated toasty oak and inviting maturation characters.

Palate: On first impression the palate is surprisingly fresh and lively, integrated with savoury notes and very attractive ripe fruit progressing to mature yet still prominent tannins, well integrated oak and wonderfully developed aged qualities.
