Cellar Reserve 2013


Tasting Notes

A superb wine with deep rich colour and flavour. In Paracombe Wines’ hallmark style the wine is highly aromatic, providing lifted aromas of dark cherry, cassis and blackberry. The palate is a delightful mix of sweet and spice, generous fruit and a long, layered finish.
The Cabernet Sauvignon gives the wine elegant fruit, structure and definition, whilst the Merlot grants balance of softness, a great marriage of complimentary grape varieties. Enjoy this wine with many styles of fine food.

What the reviewers are saying

An elegant Cru Bourgeois style with a classically gravelly texture and a pristine, complex perfume of ripe black and red berries, fresh cedar/vanilla oak and slatey, dried herbal undertones. Medium to full-bodied, it’s long and brightly lit, with a vibrant core of fruit that extends long and shapely towards a persistent and finely balanced finish. Excellent value. Jeremy Oliver
