Thompson Estate Locum Cabernet Merlot 2010
Savoury and medium bodied with a great entry on day one of blackcurrants, plums and everything that reminds you of a summer dessert. The cedary oak is already in the background and the light tannins provides a nice counter point. On day one I had this as a 87 point wine and I was ready to get out the credit card but on day three the flavours had started to peel off the palate so it had moved to an 83 point wine. I would use this as a quaffer as I wait for the big guns to mature in the cellar.
