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!

Tasting Profile

Look:

Dark garnet with a bouncy surface that settles quickly after swirling.

Smell:

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.

Taste:

Delicious and dark, with pronounced plum, black cherry, bramble, dried fall leaves and dried blackberry. Underneath, flavors of allspice, dried violets and dusty earth.

Finish:

The sweet fruit tails off first, leading to the more earthy and structured flavors. A gradual dryness moves across the entire palate.

Pairing:

Enjoy this flavorful wine with something equally bold. A garlic rubbed lamb served with rosemary baby baked potatoes would be delightful.
