Tasting Notes

Flametree's 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot is the product of a near perfect Margaret River vintage. Confident in perfume, colour and structure, it delivers lush blackcurrants, sweet capsicum and red currants with notes of rich chocolate and cocoa. The Cabernet Sauvignon (55%) and Merlot (30%) blend seamlessly with the welcome addition of Malbec (13.5%) and Petit Verdot (1.5%) to produce a well-balanced, velvety wine with an earthy finish.

“A beautiful purity runs through the wine, beginning with a bouquet of varietal cassis, redcurrant and floral notes, and the regional influence of bay leaf, tobacco and herb. Smoothly textured and supple, the flavours mirror the aromas, framed by superfine, melting tannin. Delicious. ”

“This has become such a reliable performer it’s almost into ‘go to’ territory, even at the price. This release loads up with fruit but doesn’t leave the structure wanting. It’s a ‘fine wine’ first, a crowd pleaser second. ”
