Tasting Notes Details

Mission Estate

Merlot Cabs blend - 2014

Antoine is the name of the first winemaker at Mission Estate, New Zealand's oldest winery (founded 1851). This Merlot Cabs blend offers great structure: fresh acidity and chunky tannins. The fruit is sweet on entry but has a slightly bruised note to it. The finish is short and rather hollow. Rather disappointing.
