Robert Oatley Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot 2007
Cabernet Sauvignon from Margaret River, Australia
This classic wine blend delivers flavors of currants, dark cherries, blackberry and smooth lingering finish. Secondary flavors and aromas of some dried herb and a touch of oak. This wine is perfectly balanced and truly a food pairing wine that would accompany most meals that suggest a red wine accompaniment.
Blend: 51% Cabernet Sauvignon, 49% Merlot
Australian Wine Companion - "Vibrant colour; essency redcurrant fruit and a touch of oak on the bouquet; the acidity is quite pronounced and lends a high-toned quality to the palate, and the fruit is vibrant."

About AustraliaLike the United States, which is about the same size, Australia's winemaking regions are huddled into one or two pockets of the country. The state of South Australia, which produces about 60% of the country's wine, also has the most wineries and sub-regions, including McLaren Vale, Clare Valley, Coonawarra and Barossa Valley. New South Wales is home to the Hunter Valley, while the smaller, southern state of Victoria is best known for theYarra Valley. Head way west to the very large state of Western Australia and you'll find the tiny region of Margaret River at the southern tip.
