2013 Cabernet Merlot

Vineyard Estate Range
Delicate floral tones and hints of vanilla bean and blueberries hover over brooding tones of cedar, bruised fruit and currant jelly. Entering with a punchy cherry skin precision and layers of toast, creamy mocha and chocolate, this wine culminates with a giving ripe fruit finish of rosewater and raspberries.

Knee Deep Vineyard Estate Range of wines show consistency, reliability and outstanding value for single vineyard Margaret River wines.

Reviews

93/100, Ray Jordan, The West Australian 'Fresh' Top 100 Reds 23/7/2015, Such a beautiful expression of Margaret River's famous red blend. Leafy blackcurrant, with a hint of coffee bean and light cedar. Has terrific depth of fruit, with chalky tannins and subtle oak in support.
