Unison Excalibur Gimblett Gravels Merlot Cabernet Sauvignon Syrah 2014 $38

I love that the punch of peppery syrah adds an extra flick to the tail of this warm, smooth, fulsome and velvety blend. Seriously aromatic, with dried herbs, carpenters cabin and cocoa characters, seven years on from harvest and just starting to swell and hit its straps. The bold plum, boysenberry and blueberry notes combined with bay leaf, spearmint and a layer of seasoned leather in the mid-palate, make for a deeply sexy wine to sip. Any time. Any where.
