It was world cabernet day & I decided to crack open one from one of my favourite Swan Valley wineries.
Lifted mulberry, eucalypt and blackcurrant nose.
Palate. Well structured. Dusty, fine tannins. Dark, bitter chocolate, sweet cassis & blackcurrants. Pomegranate molasses. Brambly, porcini mushrooms and slight earthy overtones. Some bitter herbs and chinotto notes. Slight alcohol heat detracts a bit.
Overall, an enjoyable wine that needs a few more years to settle down. Very promising.
Purchased from cellar door for $30
