West Cape Howe Hannah’s Hill Frankland Cabernet Merlot

Varietal definition, vibrant poise and characterful allure define an exceptionally well priced Great Southern cabernet merlot. Lovely perfume reminiscent of violets and roses introduces a crunchy palate of pristine red- and blackcurrants, underlined by great acid structure. Fine, mineral tannin texture melds seamlessly with enticing dark chocolate oak. $17 at Discount Wines and Nicks.
