About as effortless as cabernet can be. It flows, it establishes its credentials, it does just enough and then it sets about creating all the right conditions for it to cellar well. There are briary, bitter herb notes but they work with the fleshy, boysenberried cassis characters. Oak is almost nowhere to be seen. The flavours feel seamless. The longer you sit with this wine the more impressive the tannin structure seams; it unfurls. The impression of the wine’s overall quality rises as a result. Class!
