West Cape Howe Hannah’s Hill Cabernet Merlot, Frankland River 2013 $19.95
This delicious red is outstanding value. It’s deep, dark and bright in hue with ripe dark-berry aroma and flavour, excellent structure and depth. It’s very ripe but also distinctly varietal, and would take some age well. (14.5 per cent alcohol; screw cap) Score 91 ★★★★ – view on huonhooke.com Value Outstanding
