NOSE: Fresh blackberry and redcurrant, cherries and lifted freshness of primary fruits.
PALATE: A rich, soft Cabernet Sauvignon, made in a mediumbodied elegant style, intense cassis with notes of blackberries, vanilla, cherries, and dark plums. Firm ripe tannins and good use of French oak for balance and a lovely tapered finished.
WINEMAKING COMMENTS: 2014 was a cool to warm season for Cabernet Sauvignon, with good canopy growth and vine balance. This medium-bodied style of Cabernet displays varietal jammy blackcurrant notes and soft texture from the cool fermentation with gentle extractions on skins. Aged in French oak for 6 months, then blended to tank for further maturation before bottling. Cold filtered to retain pristine flavour and condition.
