Bespoke Cabernet Sauvignon
2015 Cabernet Sauvignon
Visual: Bright and intense garnet colour with nuances of dark purple and heavy, slow legs. Nose: Intense and complex aromatic bouquet of cassis, dark berries, black currants and ripe blueberries and blackberries with hints of gaminess and earthiness. The second nose delivers fresh pepper, flowers and meatiness with layers of oak spice and torrefaction. Palate: Pleasant attack on ripe blackberries and cassis with a nice, smooth and creamy texture. The midpalate is rich and complex with layers of blackcurrant, oak spice, fresh pepper, vanilla and earthiness with a strong structure of mature tannins balanced with refreshing minerality. The final impression is long and persistent with berry flavour, oak tannins and a lush texture.
