Mike Bennie's 2014 Estate Cabernet Sauvignon Review

Read Mike Bennie's reiew of out new release 2014 Estate Cabernet Sauvignon in the June/July 2017 issue of Australian Gourmet Traveller Wine.

Born from vines that average almost 50 years of age, this is a big bold cabernet of deep concentration, lavish, palate-sticking tannins and ferrous, savoury character. It’s heady in perfume of blackcurrants, plums, gum leaf and blonde tobacco. The palate is an assertive thrust of choc-berry flavours, sweet earthiness and rib-sticking, tacky-textured tannins. It’s a wine of immense presence now, and should be tamed gradually with cellaring, to reveal more nuance and detail.”
