We knew we were heading into Cab Sauv territory a little early after John from Melbourne Street Cellars had taught us that Cabs need at least a 4 year head start, but we went anyway.
And we’re glad we did.
Steve and Colin were both struck by the colour; deep, dark crimson.
Then Steve and Susan waxed lyrical about the smoothness.
There were none of the overpowering tannins one would expect from such a young, pedigree Cab, instead there were strands of fruit (Steve noted the blackberry) and pleasant finish.
While drinkable now, we’d still recommend opening in about 2016 for a sublime experience.
