Madfish Sideways Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot 2009

Product code: 14SID1B2009

A great example of a classic Margaret River Cabernet blend. There are aromas of blackberry, mulberry, smoked meats and roasted cherry tomatoes with the underlying regional bay leaf and blackcurrant Cabernet Sauvignon character. The palate is reminiscent of plum and forest floor with herbal and earthy notes. The Petit Verdot adds a subtle but important firmer backbone to the wine.
