Amberley Secret Lane Margaret River Cabernet Merlot

In Margaret River cabernet hailing from the great vintages of recent times, there’s nothing unusual about impressively pronounced black- and redcurrant fruit, well-defined tobacco, cigar box and capsicum, and signature regional high cocoa dark chocolate, coffee and graphite-fine tannins – except that you’d expect to find all this in wines starting at $30, not one that you could pick up for $15 at The Glass, Cracka, Wine List Australia, WineStar, Aussie Wines and No Frills Wine.
