Blended with 9% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot, this bold full-bodied red impresses in its thick, intensely concentrated layers of rich red fruit and leathery texture. The tannins are well integrated and firmly structured, with new French oak showing in the swathes of vanilla and toast.

It has beautiful notes of crème de cassis, graphite, tobacco, and ground herbs as well as a dense, rich, concentrated style on the palate.

The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon is a blend of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc and 1% Petit Verdot. Very deep garnet-purple in color, it comes strutting out of the glass with confident, classic cassis, warm plums and cedar chest notes with touches of pencil lead, bouquet garni and tilled soil plus a waft of cloves. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is laden with bags of black fruit and spicy sparks, framed by firm, grainy tannins and seamless freshness, finishing on a lingering earthy note.

Smoky, toasty oak makes a strong play and works into the groove in this intense and lively youngster, brimming with juicy dark berry, spice and floral notes.

It immediately bursts open to seductive aromas of ripe blackberries and dark currants, which are woven together with spices, cinnamon, loam and mocha nuances all soaring from the glass. On the palate this is full-bodied and voluptuous, with incredible depth and concentration, as it delivers layers of ripe dark fruits and spices, which build up to the long, opulent finish.
