“A substantial wine with a long way to go” - 2010 Whalebone Merlot Cab Franc

appealed to Bennie. "A pretty but rich perfume of stewed fruits, plum and prunes with some cinnamon and mara- schino cherry," he said. "A fleshy palate with ample dark fruits and tinged with choc-mint flavour. Chalky tannins, finishes fresh and peppery. It's a beefy expression of the varieties, but done well. Caillard concluded, "A substantial wine with a long way to go."
