Mills Reef Reserve Cabernet Merlot 2016
A rich and brooding wine, this traditional blend exudes intense blackcurrant and brambly blackberry flavours, with cigar box and toasty vanillin oak notes. Ageing in quality oak has conferred a silky smooth texture, giving this wine immediate appeal, or for judicious cellaring to reward over the medium term.
