Cullen Cabernet/Merlot

While I am on a good thing, I thought I open another Cabernet from Margaret River for comparison purposes. This was the 1997 Cullen Cabernet/Merlot. Again, a good experience.

This wine is a bit 'fatter' on the mid palate, as a result of the Merlot component than the Moss Wood and the finish is not as long. This wine is one of the weaker Cullen vintages. It is still a fresh and substantial wine, but not as well rounded and harmonious as yesterday's Moss Wood.

Overall, I am impressed to see how well these wines drink and accompany food at 10+ years of age (well cellared).
