Stephen Brook

Tasting: Napa & Sonoma Cabernet Sauvignon

Dense, inky black fruits nose, quite plummy. Rich, voluptuous, creamy, full-bodied, a lavish mouthful of fruit, with plenty of spice and vigour. The acidity is modest so it doesn’t have huge persistence, but it’s a hedonistic, upfront style with generous fruit.

Tasting: Napa & Sonoma Cabernet Sauvignon

This wine shows a lot of freshness and a vegetal character. Ripe with notes of cassis and prune. Does not show great complexity but acidity is good and brings balance.

Tasting: Napa & Sonoma Cabernet Sauvignon

Juicy fruit with some vanilla custard. Something medicinal in the nose too. Ripe blueberries to the max. Plenty of structure.
