COLOUR AND CONDITION
Deep brick red hue; bright condition.
This has “smouldering” Cabernet Sauvignon notes in the classic claret style – redcurrant, mulberry and lots of cigar box, cedar and tar.
The wine is full-bodied and complex, with redcurrant and mulberry fruit flavours running the full length of the palate and the finish has toasty oak and firm but balance tannins.
This is most definitely a wine that will repay long term cellaring. It will take at least a decade to develop some bottle characters and will require at least a further 15 years to reach full maturity, which it should maintain for a further decade at least.
