Fairbank Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot 2006


The Bendigo region seems quite capable of producing very good Bordeaux style wines.  This wine, with eight years of age on it, is a blend of 91% cabernet sauvignon and 9% merlot.  It has mature aromatics of blackcurrant and earth.  The palate sees medium length, some good acidity, and mature and balanced earth and blackcurrant flavours.  I wouldn't give it too much longer, but it's currently drinking very well.

Rating: Good, Abv: 13%, Price: $20s, Vendors: http://www.wine-searcher.com/, Website: http://www.suttongrange.com.au, Tasted: 2014
