2014 was a wonderful vintage, highlighting the attractive fragrance of McLaren Vale Cabernet. The nose has an abundance of violets and purple fruits, paired with a subtle twist of mint. The palate is slick and streamlined. Whilst the mouthfeel is certainly not sweet and blousy, there is no evidence of a donut here, as the seamless line of super chalky tannins and elegant yet intense fruits pass from front palate to finish without deviating off track. More of those wonderful purple fruits, cassis and violets, along with additional notes of baked capsicum and tobacco towards the tail. Youthful, energetic and pure at 3 to 4 years old, with time the tannins will be tempered, tautness through the mid-palate will relax and the abundance of primary fruits will be given depth with a second raft of dried fruits and cedary characters. Classy. While enjoyable in youth, this wine will reach its full potential with bottle age up to at least 20 years. The considerable structure and depth will ensure that the fruit characters will develop over time revealing more complexity and providing immense interest.
