Zig Zag Road Cabernet Merlot 2005

Zig Zag Road is a small winery located 540 metres above sea level in the Macedon Ranges. So pretty cold then. And perhaps a somewhat unlikely location to ripen cabernet sauvignon. Not surprisingly then, their 2005 cabernet merlot smells like a mint plot. On the palate, there are flavours of mint, leaves and tea. It's ok, but I don't go for minty cabernet so much. 82 points (6.7/10).

Abv: 13.7%
Price: around $26
Would I buy it having tasted it? No
