Always a major star in Dan Murphy's exclusive Cellar Release range, Annie's Lane provides great cellaring potential at a great price. The 2005 Cabernet Merlot is displaying great blackcurrant aromas with mixed berry and violets. Great oak integration with both French and American delivers a palate that is soft, supple and still big on primary fruit.
I've tasted it a couple of times now and it seems to be getting better each time - fleshier, fuller, with more zap to its flavours. It tastes of pencils, blackcurrant, mocha and cream, and is both balanced and fruity through the aftertaste. The first time I tasted it I had it pegged at 87 points; I've now just ticked it over to 90. If you can get it at a good price, jump in. Drink: 2008-2013.
Vintage: 2005 Score: 90 points
