Wishing Tree Merlot Cabernet Sauvignon blend 2004 (wine review) by (PB)

Another Australian creation comprised of 61% Merlot and 39% Cabernet Sauvignon. It is pretty garnet with a slightly vegetal nose of berries. In the mouth it is sweet, bitter and tannic killing the real fruit that lies beneath.

With air, this Western Australia red has a nice full fruit laden bouquet which mellows out from opening but still has chewy tannins. It is simple, berry rich, new world and an average wine for the price of under $9 (case price). Raise a glass.
