Some time ago I was quite impressed when I drank Pinot Noir from De Salis, an Orange based winery. Today I am reviewing the strangely named Bordeaux blend, which is predominantly Merlot with some Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc.
The 2012 De Salis St EM M is a medium-bodied wine. Cherry and redcurrant fruit is a bit simple on the palate. The pluses are this is a lighter wine, quite harmonious with some savoury notes. The wine fizzles out on the finish.
