Medium-bodied. The complete package:
Fruit: Juicy redcurrant jelly, dark plum (and plum acidity), fresh rhubarb.
Acidity: ‘Just right’ – a lively and lifted conveyance from initial lip-contact to sated ingestion.
Tannins: Integrated, polished-graphite tannins
Oak: Seamlessly hidden/concealed oak. Melding well with fruit.
Overall, cabernet balance and definition, sans exaggeration.
Instantly cabernet, exposed by fragrant violet, lavender, blue fruits and a waft of red apple blossom.
And yet there’s much more with scented illuminations of:
Baked delights – Danish pastry/croissant and rye bread crust.
A Mediterranean ratatouille – laced with thyme, oregano and pulped olive.
Chamois, new-buck leather.
Cedar – yet any oak presence certainly respectful of fruit.
