93 Points | Campbell Mattinson – Tapanappa Wines Whalebone Vineyard Merlot Cabernet Franc 2007

Author: Campbell Mattinson
Source: The Wine Front
Review Date: Oct 2011

Whopping price on this first-release merlot-cabernet franc blend from Tapanappa’s Whalebone Vineyard. But the wine quality is excellent.

Elegant, finely structured, ripe but not sweet. It walks the talk of modern Australian red wine. It tastes of pencil and fresh herbs, leather and dark cherry. It has some curranty oomph, but it’s not a big bellied wine; it’s medium weight, almost slender. Vibrant aroma. Dry finish. Minor amount of eucalypt. Aftertaste of aniseed. It’s a red wine I’d be more than happy to have in my glass.

Rated : 93 Points

Drink : 2012 – 2017
