Houghton Red Classic Cabernet Shiraz Merlot 2013
Blackberry red. A little dusty and flannelly on the nose with hints of redcurrants and nuances of cigar box and cedar. In the mouth this soft centred blend shows off each grape's traits – currants and mint of the Cabernet; pepper of the Shiraz; and plums, pencils and cigar box of the Merlot. Easy drinking with dusty tannins and a soft finish, it doesn’t seem to be too heavily oaked.
