Dark ruby-red. Quintessential cabernet aromas of blackcurrant, fresh herbs, tobacco and spices. Juicy and youthfully tight but seamless too, with a powerful penetrating quality to its showy flavors of blueberry, cassis, tobacco and peppery herbs. This impressively complex cabernet finishes with sweet tannins and lingering notes of mocha and fresh herbs.

The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon is gorgeous. Layers of dark red fruit, flowers, spices and licorice are some of the notes that emerge in this beautifully delineated, expressive Cabernet. The fruit shows fabulous vibrancy through to the silky, perfumed finish. This is a beautiful 2009 loaded with class and personality. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2029.

Very appealing, with a pleasant mix of dark berry, mocha, dried herb and underbrush, tightly focused, firmly tannic and persistent. Drink now through 2024. 1,000 cases made.
