The richness of the Cabernet provides the structure for the wine, while the Merlot provides a soft, suppleness to round out the palate. Balgownie Estate’s Cabernet Merlot has an attractive level of richness with a lovely depth of flavour and complexity. The wine has blackcurrant and cassis flavours balanced by the soft, plum roundness of the Merlot.
