Wine Entry : Black Opal 2001 Australian (Cabernet Sauvignon & Merlot)


This wine is very approachable and smooth with a mild taste. The colour is a bright ruby red. Got this at DFS Singapore Airport for S$25, this wine is not sold openly in the supermarkets but can probably get it at boutique wine shops. This wine is my strong recommendation for one with good value. I have already savoured many a bottle.

Smell : Rose, autumn sweetness with blackcurrents overtones.

Taste : Smooth with no or mild tannins, filled with gooseberry and raspberry.

After-taste : Presence of dark chocolate which has a bitterness in the medium finish.
