    Value+. I was impressed by the Shiraz Cabernet 2014 sampled recently, and this straight Cabernet stacks up just as well. Plenty of oomph to sink your teeth into without being overbearing. Buckets of chocolate and dark berry fruit are framed by savoury goodness - fresh mint, vanilla and dried sage. An earthy drive and blackcurrant play secondary roles. Fine tannins are ribbed and on the plump side. Lots of happiness and easy drinking appeal. Drink now to five years. Score: 90/100 10/2018

    Tasting Notes

    The dark colour comes from the ripe and dense skins of the Cabernet grapes in the warm autumn sun. It bursts with dark fruit flavours and is framed by smooth chocolate and vanilla with hints of fresh mint. A full-bodied red wine which is both rich and easy drinking.

    Vinification

    The fruit was crushed into 8 tonne open fermenters and left on skins to cold macerate for three days prior to fermentation. The wine underwent its malolactic transformation in oak, was then racked and returned to French and American oak for a 12-month maturation. Blending was completed just prior to bottling. 2014

    Vintage

    2014 followed the classic road of a late vintage accompanying a late Easter. Deep soil moisture from a traditional winter flood bolstered us against the warm summer days, as did the cooling Langhorne Creek winds. 2014 in Langhorne Creek is heralded as offering the best Cabernet Sauvignon in over a decade.
