A superlative vintage, but what sets Thompson Estate's wines apart is their understated confidence. The fruit, a jubilant chorus of cabernet's choir, singing currant, graphite and bay leaf. Merlot provides some juicy fill and Malbec (7%) and franc (6%) some aromatic high tones. The oak, older French, serves as a signpost rather than a stop sign. Read more

This Cab-Merlot blend provides a lovely, approachable example of its distinctive style. It opens with upfront aromas of currants, tobacco leaf, olive, seaweed and dried savory herbs. There's an appealing tang and crunchiness to the fruit in the mouth, with a savory, saline spine. Sandpapery tannins are chiseled and a little austere but neatly placed. The finish is long. Pair with steak, roast beef or lamb.

This has impressively ripe and glossy red-fruit aromas with some baking spices and a cedary oak overlay that adds some classically styled complexity to the mix. The palate has a plush red-plum and mulberry fruit core with gently grainy tannins and chocolate here, too. Medium body. Good balance. Drink now. Screw cap.

Tasting Notes

Aromas of ripe dark berries and spice mingle with subtle notes of herbs and oak. The colour is deep ruby red with crimson hues. On the palate, this medium-bodied blend offers an inviting array of layered flavours including dark cherry and plum with background nuances of oak and spice. The tannins are soft and integrated providing a smooth and satisfying finish.
