Colour Red-black-purple and darkly lustrous. Nose Blackberries from the cane underlined by a quicksilver waft of vanilla. Rounded, ripe and yet true to cabernet sauvignon’s DNA. Lifted aromatics of hardy herbs and tobacco leaf; hints of minerals, lime and earth. Palate Fruit and tannin in harmony. Blackberry and cassis with background acidity. Structure and length. The faintest lick of finely tuned oak spice at the front palate. The core of blackberry fruit is well-mannered, with multitudinous and graphitic tannins swimming effortlessly in at palate’s end. A big mouthful of red wine, but so structured as to remain poised and polite.
