2007 Philip Shaw No 17, Merlot Cabernet Franc Cabernet, NSW
Oddbins £17. B+

Lifted, dark fruits, violets, some floral touches, there's a bit of green woody notes at the back, fruit driven. Fresh, nice fat acidic structure, plenty of berries and currants, tannins have softened slightly. Drinking well, but just fruit-dominated, nothing complex / interesting, disappointing for the price.
