Howard Park Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot 2004 Red WineWine Tasting Note: Howard Park Cabernet Sauvignon/Merlot, 2004, Western Australia. Dripping with gorgeous ripe, peppery, scrummy fruit. Wonderful balance and youthfully delicious with smooth blackberry fruit in abundance, smooth, perfectly balanced and beautifully crafted. I rather like it. Alcohol 13.5%.

Enthusiastic hyperbole aside it is a lovely wine. Still youthful but drinking beautifully. Price? Around £25 I believe.
Scribblings Rating - 94/100 [4.25 out of 5]

This wine was made from low yielding old vine Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot grapes grown in the Great Southern and Margaret River from the outstanding 2004 vintage. It was fermented in small open topped stainless steel tanks. Twice daily aerative pumpovers aided the developement of mature tannin. The wine was matured in 100% new French oak barriques for 20 months producing a wine with the textural complexity that will reward cellaring."

Despite the indications in the photograph you don't actually require a corkscrew. This wine is sealed with a screwcap.
