James Suckling Review
This shows real interest on the nose with fresh blackcurrants, ivy, tea leaf, vanilla, cloves and peppermint. Freshness comes through aplenty on the palate, which is full-bodied with structured if chewy tannins, some pretty acidity and a driven finish. Blend of 85% cabernet sauvignon, 15% merlot. Drink in 2020.
Deep dark plum red in color, this Cabernet Sauvignon shows rich aromas of cassis, ripe dark cherries, black currants, cedar, and a hint of bay leaf. The mouthfeel is youthful and exuberant with bright acidity and bold tannins, a round oak sweetness, fruit flavors of plum and blackberry, and an intriguing savory note. The massive structure results in a remarkably long rich finish.
Menu suggestion: The abundance of big tannins this vintage beckon for a richly marbled bone-in rib eye, perfectly seared and dusted with salt and pepper. Should you not find that in your ice box, this Cabernet Sauvignon will be right at home with a big juicy cheeseburger too.
