Bellingham Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot Classic 1998

Rich, dark ruby/purple with black folds. Enticing nose with intense smells of plums, soft berry fruits intermingled with aromas of coconut, hint of vanilla. Full, forward fruit, well medium structured body with soft finish. Intense fruit with intermingle of coffee, chocolate and ripe mulberry. Creamy texture, gentle touch of vanilla.

Compelling wine with intensity that will reward maturity in the bottle yet already sleek, lush and very drinkable. Wonderful wine for stews, roasts and general winter fare. A must for steak and various grills. Also with veined cheese, mature cheddar and other full flavoured cheese. Do not forget the vegetarian dishes with brinjals.
