Shaw Vineyard Estate Merriman Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon Canberra District 2015

This is an outstanding cabernet sauvignon from Shaw in the Canberra District.  Who knew this region was capable of producing this level of quality with cabernet sauvignon?  Deeply coloured, it opens to classic cabernet aromas of clove and cassis.  The palate has fresh acidity, prodigious  length and quite approachable tannins.  This wine can be approached now, and should drink well over the next 5-8 years.  Rating: Very Good. Abv: 14.5%. Price: $65. Source: Sample.
