Unison Gimblett Gravels Classic Blend Merlot Cabernet Sauvignon Syrah 2013 $40

Eight years on from vintage and this mighty merlot-dominated blend is developing an edge of espresso, cola and soy which cloaks the blueberry and dark plum in the mid-palate. Leather licked and layered with dusty tannins on the finish, this wine is maturing nicely into a spicy, savoury spectrum and it’s entering its peak drinking period now.
