A terrific follow up to the profound 2015, this is a pure, regal and pedigreed Cabernet Sauvignon. It shows a black core and crimson edge, offering a brightness to the densely ripe fruit. The decadence on the nose reminds of milk chocolate melted over baked blueberries, Morello cherries and cream. It is full in body with chalky tannins, imbued by a rich texture and salty liquorice on the finish which delivers finesse and serious length. The palate is rather towering, deep and somewhat closed on release. It will drink well for a decade or more.
