This 2017 Cabernet is a bright, medium crimson and has wonderful spicy aromas of dark cherry, tobacco and cassis. A subtle background mix of spicy, sweet French oak provides depth to the aroma profile. With 2017 being a cooler ripening year in Margaret River, the Cabernet is medium bodied whilst still showing powerful fruit flavours and tannins. Soft liquorice and blackcurrant flavours combine with sweet oak to deliver a wonderful expression of Margaret River Cabernet Sauvignon.
