Red Knot McLaren Vale

Cabernet Sauvignon 2017



Tasting Note

Brilliant deep magenta. Fragrant primary aromas of blackcurrant are highlighted with nuances of dark chocolate, fennel and bay leaf. The ripe blackberry and blueberry flavours are framed by fine, cedary oak and linger on the long finish. The textured tannins and savoury elements combine with the dark berry fruit to complete this medium to full-bodied Cabernet Sauvignon.

Fantastic value to be found with this wine. Textbook mid-palate concentration with bright, energised fruit that has intensity and clarity. The tannins are soft and balanced. A dependable wine with broad appeal. 90/100
