You are in for a real treat with today’s exceptional Mercer Wine Estate 2009 Anthem Reserve Red, a delicious, elegant and balanced blend of Merlot (64%), Cabernet Sauvignon (21%), Malbec (9%) and Petit Verdot (6%).
Today marks the debut of Mercer Wines Estate on our pages and you can be assured that you’ll be seeing more of them in the future.
This delicious blend is a big wine, with concentrated flavors and a large mouthfeel. The delightful and balanced finish reveals the softer, more elegant side of the wine. Enjoy now - but be sure to cellar a few bottles - as this wine will be good for at least another decade.
We offer you today’s delightful wine with our heartiest recommendation. Cheers!
Dark garnet with a bouncy surface that settles quickly after swirling.
Sweet Bing cherry and tobacco leap from the glass. These lovely notes are followed by dried violet, cherrywood cigar box, cracked pepper and dark tobacco leaf.
Delicious and dark, with pronounced plum, black cherry, bramble, dried fall leaves and dried blackberry. Underneath, flavors of allspice, dried violets and dusty earth.
The sweet fruit tails off first, leading to the more earthy and structured flavors. A gradual dryness moves across the entire palate.
Enjoy this flavorful wine with something equally bold. A garlic rubbed lamb served with rosemary baby baked potatoes would be delightful.
