Violet and blueberry

Pikes The Dogwalk Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot 2015, Clare Valley, AUD $23

Bright and lively blackcurrant aromas, plus a little violet and blueberry. The palate is beautifully medium-bodied with pure and supple red and blue fruits. The tannins are ultra-fine, and the acidity is perfectly integrated. This is a very well-made and well-balanced wine. Equally good with or without food. (Screwcap)
