2012 Mount Horrocks Cabernet Sauvignon
Dark magenta – purple.
Penetrating, distinctive cabernet – forest fruits, currant, herb and cedary oak.
Dark fruits fill the mouth, hints of lightly minted chocolate, and stylish cedar/spice from time in barrel. At once quite rich, this is extremely elegant and long, with a fine-boned structure and heady appeal.
Cabernet’s characteristically firm tannins, whilst present, are smooth and long.
An outstanding wine with a tremendous future.
Keep for up to 15 years.
