2001 OWEN SULLIVAN M
A powerful 60/35/5 blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc, M has blackberry, cassis nose with a subtle earthiness. Concentrated and muscular with definite Cabernet Sauvignon presence it is none the less bursting with silky Merlot fruit edged with nutmeg, cinnamon, tobacco and chocolate. The broad tannic structure emerges in the long tasty finish.
Drink now through 2009.
"...M is a winning blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. It's rich dense style packs in plenty of black cherry, currant and licorice flavors, wrapped in firm, fine grained tannins, letting the flavors linger beautifully."
