Fraser Gallop Estate Cabernet Merlot 2009

Fraser Gallop is situated on 165 acres of undulating land in the Margaret River in the Wilyabrup region.  Their 2009 cabernet merlot seems to be their “cheapie”, but it’s not bad.  It opened to aromas of cola, raw fruit and wood, but settled down a bit.  On the palate, it was a little jumpy, but there was quite a bit of length, with fine grained tannins, though warm at times in the mouth.  The wine though improved and had settled down upon drinking the next day.  (Alc: 14%, Region: Margaret River, Western Australia, Rating: Good, Tasted: June, 2011)
