Clos Malverne Cabernet Merlot 2017
Mid to deep ruby; shy-ish with snatches of fruitcake, milk chocolate and cedar, very correct. Full-bodied; a meaty, chunky wine with warm, friendly dark fruit and soft ripe tannins to match. Lip-smacking!
Hearty meat loaf with spicy glaze, or baked ham and lightly curried apricots, or stuffed cabbage leaves Russian-style.
