Cabernet merlot blends have to be considered the top representations of cabernet in the country. In general they offer savoury flavours with a taut tannin structures that with time opens up adding extra complexity and drink ability. This offer from Alkoomi is the entry level drink me while i'm young kind of a wine but still retains some of those savoury profiles.
