Mount Horrocks Cabernet Sauvignon 2006

For the Cellar

Clare Valley red is seldom as stylish as this. Powerful cassis, raspberry cabernet nose, not leafy but ripe and succulent. The palate is elegant and finely structured, with unusual finesse for Clare. It’s firm with a big future. Drink now to 17-plus years; best left five years.
