Aldi, Original Series Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot, 2016
(at Skyloft, London, 03 Sep 2017)
Drinking Window: 2017 - 2018
This wine comes in a heavy, premium looking bottle. Unfortunately I found that the liquid inside couldn't quite live up to this. Leafy aromas of cranberry and hedgerow fruit with a waft of tar and chocolate lead into slightly tart flavours of sloe and elderberry. A herbal, minty character and liquorice and tar notes lurk in the background. Suggestions of unripeness, and lacking much in the way of what you would expect from these two grape varieties.
