91 pts Wine Advocate January 2019

Predominantly Merlot (60%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (33%), with bits of Cabernet Franc (5%) and Petit Verdot (2%), Balnaves’ 2015 The Blend is a full-bodied, rich, ripe, almost lusty red. Subtle notes of menthol and oak spice mark the nose, while the palate is open yet structured and firm, with a juicy, mouthwatering finish of cassis, cinnamon and clove. 2018-2025

91 pts James Suckling June 2019

Very good-value red with an exuberant array of fresh berries and knockabout tannins. Always reliable, this wine. A blend of cabernet sauvignon, cabernet franc and petit verdot. Drink now. Screw cap.

Winemaker Notes

Dark red in color, the nose is intense with aromas of wild anise and liquorice combined with delicate smoky-coffee French oak. The palate is medium bodied with a soft round Merlot mouth-feel and black fruit flavors, with a touch of liquorice and blueberry.

Blend: 60% Merlot, 33% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Cabernet Franc, 2% Petit Verdot
