⚡️New Release Alert ⚡️

The Alkoomi 2010 'Blackbutt' from Frankland River in WA's Great Southern region is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (80%), Malbec (14%), Cabernet Franc (5%) and Merlot (1%). It spends 20 months in french oak barrels prior to bottling. RRP $65.

It's a stunning crimson red on the eye with a smooth smoked black cherry and vanilla aroma. On the palate it's beautifully elegant with raspberry and blackcurrant flavours intertwined with supple earthy tannins. Super graceful and tasty.

All opinions are based on my own taste buds. Wine is subjective & always evolving, so make sure you drink what you enjoy! #gifted #tcweekdaywine

I don’t normally love reds but alAdrian says....
“Delicious Cabernet blend and despite the Malbec is French style and a great match with red meat”.
And even I like it 👌 yummy

Intense garnett
Smoked. Tobacco leaves, cardamon, mint, earthy notes.. maybe slightly too old?

'08 Vintage. Consumed July '15.

Dark black red in color.
Normal generic red wine nose and taste straight from bottle.

Decant for an hour and develops very well. Black fruit marmalade. Goes well with gamey meat, stir-fry venison, and heavily sauced meat.

Will buy again.
