About this product

"Deep purple-black in color, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate Reserve is a little closed to begin, slowly revealing fresh blackberries, blackcurrants and black plums notes with touches of eucalypt, cinnamon stick, roses and fertile soil. Medium to full-bodied, the palate delivers mouth-filling black fruits with plenty of spicy accents and a pleasantly chewy finish." RP

"Starting out, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate Reserve is the least expensive cuvée and spent 22 months in 55% new French oak. It offers a classic Cabernet nose of blackcurrants, new saddle leather, lead pencil, and dried tobacco. This gives way to a medium to full-bodied, supple, elegant wine that has loads of charm and character. ItÂs a beautiful wine that will keep for 15 years or more." JD

"At its core, the Estate Reserve Cabernet is the foundation of what they produce here. It is from this wine that the higher end Signature and Aurum wines are carved out for special bottlings, and from this wine the non-reserve bottling is removed. It is designed to be derivative of the vineyards terroir, balanced and animated, complex, age-worthy and especially satisfying to drink. This is the earth, the weather, the plants and the winemaker in tune, together. No one style or clone or barrel dominates in any way  here is instead a full-on expression of the vineyard, from the creek to the cave." Winery Notes
