2007 Frankland Estate “Olmo’s Reward”. Frankland River Region, WA. 14%

I read this great post over at Perth Wine Enthusiast and wanted to share it. This sounds like an amazing red blend – one that I’d be more than willing to splurge on (beyond my normal “cheap wine” budget). It isn’t extremely expensive, though. By the way — WA is Western Australia.

Frankland Estate “Olmo’s Reward” 2

A blend of 46% Merlot, 45% Cabernet Franc and 9% Malbec

A good mid to full bodied wine.

Juicy plums, tempered with dark chocolates and hazelnuts. Some rose petal perfume. Strong mint with chinotto and tobacco influences in the background.

A real bitter sweet finish, which will lend itself nicely to food.

With air, the choc & mints really comes out and fruits appear riper and are more evident.

All in all, a good wine. Say 93 Points.

Tasted 11th April 2013

Purchased 2 years ago from Dan Murphy’s for $36
