Item no. 97783
Dense crimson red. Ripe, concentrated and varietal. To the fore - dark fruits laced with bay-leaf, camphor, cinnamon and kalamata olive (juice). Less obtrusively - subtle leather & polish, nutmeal and a modicum of oak. Redolent of a dark blackcurrant/prune jus over a sticky date or Christmas pudding, yet retaining a somewhat savoury juiciness. A beguiling texture - south-east chalk, sea-mineral (wet-stone) gravely tannins and integrated oak -conspiring to create a dense, muscular weave. No mint , no leafiness - simply full-throttle, amply-flavoured dark Cabernet, replete with a cassis thumb-print.
Has classic cabernet character, with a distinctly austere framework surrounding the blackcurrant and earth fruit; the tannins are in balance and not dry, the oak likewise in balance. An appallingly heavily wine-stained cork.
