Balnaves The Blend 2014

Balnaves The Blend 2014 94 pts James Halliday

Tasting Notes

The aromatics plays a nice balancing act between savory and fruity with notes of licorice, herbs, some black olive and a touch of oak spice to the blackberry and dark currant notes. Medium to medium fuller bodied, the black fruit flavors gain some flesh and suppleness with aeration, while the tannins are finer tuned, with the acidity in perfect balance. Finishing with good length this is now starting to open up and should continue to drink impressively over the next 3-4 years.

Awards, Reviews and other Notes

94 pts James Halliday 2017
56% cabernet sauvignon, 38% merlot 6% cabernet franc, matured in fine-grained French oak for 14 months. One of the classics at this price point, over-delivering the goods year in, year out. It makes you wonder why there aren't more blends such as this in Coonawarra, the blend with genuine integrity.

Winemaker Notes

Dark red in color, this wine offers an intense nose with aromas of mulberry, wild blackberry and licorice combined with delicate, smoky French oak. On the palate, it is medium-bodied with a generous mouth-feel dominated by black fruit flavors and a touch of dried herbs. The Merlot component adds plushness while Cabernet provides the structure.
