Ashbrook Cabernet Merlot 2005

89 points

Margaret River, WA. 14%

Med red. Shake the trapped CO2 out of it. Aromas of red fruit and some iron.

It seems medium bodied in spite of the 14% alcohol. There is acid right the way through. Needs more time to fatten and open up, and in this way it reminds me of vintages of Cullen Cabernet Merlot back in the 1990s.
