Red berry fruits with classic cigar notes over crushed dried herbs, black cherry and ripe plums with red cherry freshness.
The nose is inviting and fresh with a vibrant youthful energy of bouncy red fruit and an earthy undertow. The tannins are still tight, medium bodied and fresh, expressing the crystalline character of the 2017 vintage.
As the wine evolves in the glass there is an attractive tension between red and black fruit with a hint of liquorice over a linear focused and dry finish.
A blend of 93% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Petit Verdot.
