Balnaves Cabernet Merlot 2008

I’ve struggled a little bit with the cabernet merlot blend produced by Balnaves.  The 2007 release I gave 78 points.  The 2008 is better: an aroma of earth, spice, chocolate – typical Coonawarra.  But the palate shows its acidity and there isn’t a lot of depth of flavour.  Pleasant, but average.  82 points.
