Knight Granite Hills The Gordon Cabernets 2008

A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot. Showing a vibrant nose of cassis, eucalyptus, dark plum some faint dark berry compote and brown spice. 

On the palate its showing deliciously medium intensity blackcurrant , plum again and some slight minerality too. It really does have a good balance between savoury spice and really pleasing dark fruited juiciness. Ripe, drying and somewhat chalky tannins balance out this wine leading to a nice length of palate to boot.  

I'm having this with basic garlic and rosemary sausages and baked vegies. But I think it would be perfect for rosemary roasted lamb.

I picked this bottle up on my recent trip to Macedon Ranges, read the full round up here.
