2015 Cabernet Sauvignon, Ribbon Vale Vineyard, Moss Wood, W. Australia
"This wine shows the style of the 2015 vintage and quite likely the impact of the small crop. In such years, Cabernet Sauvignon in particular, has a complex but somewhat subdued nose, where the wine hints of the underlying power and complexity but takes years to reveal its true colours. So here we see smouldering red currant, black currant and mulberry, with a floral, violet lift, sitting over cedar and tar. On the palate there is concentration and length – dark fruits combining with firm tannin and leather and tarry notes."
94% Cabernet Sauvignon/ 3% Cabernet Franc / 3% Merlot.
"A really stylish and suave cabernet here. This has an array of earthy, leafy and lightly spicy aromas. A mid-weight palate that offers attractive rich flavors amid gently grainy tannins. Drink now or hold. Screw cap." JAMES SUCKLING, JAMESSUCKLING.COM - Points: 93
"Opaque crimson. Strong ripe blackcurrant, hints of blue fruits and cedary overtones. Medium to full-bodied with strong oak support that drives the wine forward, intensifying the tannins and grip." DAVID BICKNELL, JAMES HALLIDAY WINE COMPANION - Points: 90
