The 5OS Project 2012 Merlot Cabernet
Just got a flashback to a time when I didn’t think twice about walking around without a shirt on…
In keeping with the theme, I’m not 100% convinced this wine has an eternity ahead of it, but right now I reckon it’s spot on. Old school oak and handling, it’s super ripe and overloaded with extract, flavour and texture. It’s screaming out for a prolonged ‘session on the reds’. Not many places in the world can make this sort of wine; lucky for us McLaren Vale is one of them. 5 years well spent and well worth remembering.
SG score 8.5/10
Alcohol: 14.5% vol.
