20 months in barrel, 10% of which is new.
Perhaps this is what Rumpole meant when searching for a "cheeky
railway claret." In this instance, there is a clear expression of the
complexity of Cabernet Sauvignon: cedar, violets, dark red and black
fruits, cold tea and a faint whiff of kiwi boot polish. Perfectly ripe
fruit provides the melody while the bass notes come from tannins that
underpin this wine. A new age Cabernet that is immediately appealing
though also built for the longer term.
