Drinking Window: 2020 - 2022
Compared to many full-throttle fruit-bomb Cabernets, this offers real elegance for the price. There's welcome savoury leather complexity alongside the ripe dark berry fruits and a lift of fresh mint, chocolatey tannins and good balancing acidity to support the creamy mid-weight palate. A perfect partner for chargrilled aubergine and lamb chops.
