THE PUP Cabernet Merlot 2010

THE PUP Cabernet Merlot 2010

Varietals: 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot

Tasting notes: A silky smooth and more-ish modern Aussie Cab Merlot Blend! The hue is deep dark purple. The overall bouquet is spicy dark forest berries with a hint of perfumed French oak. The palate is filled with big bright juicy fruit flavours that tantalise and tease. A concentrated food-wine that pairs beautifully with generous flavoured dishes.

Review: “Intense plum and boysenberry nose with bramble, sweet molasses and tar. Palate is firm and rich with dried herbal notes ripe purple plum, blackberry, cassis and chocolate balanced with bright, rounded acids. Both supple and lively. Tannins are ripe and silky and wine is overall quite well balanced and structured. Moderate depth and complexity with a generous finish. Tasted June 2011.” 88 points, Sara d’Amato.
