Bellingham Cabernet Sauvignon / Merlot 2006

An intriguing fusion of intense black berry, crushed mulberry and tobacco spice from the Cabernet Sauvignon with juicy ripe plum, lush black cherry and liquorice appeal of the Merlot.

Smooth and delicious drinking with barbeques, rich meaty pastas, grilled lamb chops and pizza.
