Single Bottle - Standard - 750ml
Hints of sage and bay leaf join bell pepper and cassis on the nose of the 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon. It's medium to full-bodied, smooth and silky, with a tart, lingering finish. It's a gently tannic red for drinking over the near term.
Very polished blue fruit and plums on the nose here with gentle, cedary-oak influence, as well as herbs and leafy freshness. The palate is smooth and supple with power and charm, delivering plenty of blackcurrant flavor amid bright, crunchy acidity. Drink or hold. Screw cap.
This is clamped down and tightly so across the palate. It opens up with mulberries, tomato leaves, iodine/nori and lots of menthol reflecting the region but more so a cooler vintage. They all sit comfortably enough, but sinewy tannins and vanillin oak pucker the finish. Still youthful and bright so this might settle in time.
