Blackjack has long been one of our favourite examples of this popular Cabernet Merlot blend and this 2019 Blackjack Cabernet Merlot is another cracking example.
Blackberry and red currant fruit aromas are offered on the nose, with some subtle mint and mixed herbs. The mid weighted palate, is approachable, refined and elegant, with lovely dark fruit flavours; plum and blackcurrant supported but some fine, firm tannins.
"Hand picked and open-fermented with hand plunging 3-4 times a day then pressed, followed by maturation in French oak. First step is a swish or a decant to release that subtle waft of Bendigo bay leaf, together with attractive merlot florals against a background of blackberry, cassis, spice and vanillin oak. It offers a wonderful introduction to the all-too-rare sight of a Bendigo cabernet merlot. Cabernet takes the lead on the palate, all structure and tannin-keen. The effect is softened nicely by merlot's sweet-hearted fruit concentration. 90 Points. 13.5% alc. Drink by: 2027. Screwcap"- Jeni Port, winecompanion.com.au.
