Gartelmann Phillip Alexander Mudgee 2013

Gartelmann's "Phillip Alexander" is a blend of merlot, cabernet sauvignon and petit verdot.  The 2013 vintage release is a good one.  On the nose, there are coffee, plum and mocha aromatics.  The palate is medium bodied, with fresh acidity and a crunchy impression.  Some early raw edges settled with time in the glass; give it a short decant before serving.  (Alc: 14.4%, Region: Mudgee, Rating: Good, Drink: now to 2022)
