2018 Willow Creek Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon
This is the very last vintage of this medium bodied, elegant Cabernet Sauvignon. Grown from vines planted in 1989, this wine displays aromas of blackcurrant and blackberry, layered with mint and aniseed.
|Drink with:||Beef, braised rainbow chard, green peppercorn, rocket|
|Bouquet:||Aromas tumble enticingly from the glass, with a dark compote of blackcurrant and blackberry layered with aniseed and mint. Subtle leaf and black olive add herbal complexity, balanced attractively by notes of dark chocolate.|
|Palate:||The elegant, medium weight structure frames the intense blackcurrant pastille flavours, with subtle savoury notes from oak rounding out the typical cool-climate length of the wine.|
