Helen & Joey Estate Inara Cabernet Merlot 2017

  • 13.5% Alc. Vol.
  • $25.00 per bottle (2018 vintage)

Another from the mystery six pack, this is one absolutely delicious drop. For my particular tastes this wine is faultless.

A smooth blend with more Merlot than Cabernet on the palate, it leaves a rich berry finish that leaves the walls of your mouth feeling like they’ve been painted with pure, unfiltered happiness. This wine is what happiness tastes like.

I’d write more about this ravishing blend but I’m too busy drinking it. With a couple of years in the bottle it is absolutely superb right now. Not currently listed on their website, but this is worth a phone call to H&J to see if they have much left in stock.


Rating: 5 out of 5.

I drank this with an eye fillet steak dinner and the pairing was amazing. Once the red meat was done and dusted the cab merlot remained just as satisfying.
