Criminal Minds, Cabernet Merlot

Cabernet Merlot

On the run between our South Australian vineyards, we collude with our vines to deliver the goods on ultimate varietal expression.

We’re constantly scheming about rejuvenating our beautiful Murray wetlands too – for which the authorities have already chased us down an award! Enjoy with your last meal or in isolation.

A wine worth breaking out for – the perfect partnership – Cabernet  Sauvignon and Merlot. Enjoy this full bodied wine, stuffed with characters of blue berries, plums and blackcurrant, with visitors and saucy helpings.

Are you ready to surrender?

Seasoned, house select French oak is used in the maturation of this smooth well-balanced Cabernet Merlot.

PALATE  The palate is bold, displaying abundant red berry  fruits and supple fine grain silky tannins.
