Description

The 2016 Mission Barrique Reserve Cabernet Merlot could very well be considered as the best buy out of this stellar vintage? It's a strikingly elegant assemblage of mostly Cabernet (80%) and Merlot (20%) producing a wine of astonishing quality. Rarely do you see a wine of such cellaring potential at such a modest price point - if you're a regular red wine drinker a case or two will pay massive dividends over the next decade.

Smells

Beautifully perfumed with cassis, plum, dried rose petals, freshly mown hay and a suggestion of olive and soy sauce.

Tastes

Plenty of concentration and savoury interest aligned with sweet red and black berry fruits. A bed of fine tannins and juicy, plummy acidity carry the long, detailed finish. Enjoy now or cellar through to 2030.
