2016 Skigh Coda Cabernet Merlot

Margaret River, WA

Deliciously juicy Cab Merlot from an up-and-coming producer.



About The Wine

This is absolutely cracking value in the context of Margaret River Cabernet Merlot blends.

It's not a super-serious, cellaring style. It's a lighter daily-drinking version of this famous regional blend, but one that hits the itch that only a Cab Merlot from Margaret River can scratch.

Ripe fruit, juiciness and smashability you rarely see in this blend from this area.

Critic Reviews

DDS review

Sweet blackcurrants, bay leaves, cranberries - it couldn't come from anywhere but Margaret River. There's ample fruit, soft moreish tannins, sits plump and juicy in the mouth. Such easy drinking. Very solid value bet for lovers of the Cab Merlot pairing. - Different Drop Wine Team
