Chapel Hill Parsons Nose Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

An oh-so-attractive black fruit leaps from the glass here, pure damson and mulberry - makes me want to place my head in a vatful and 'motorboat' with it. 

My own proclivities aside, the palate here is somewhat at odds against that playful, inviting aroma - cushioned entry, before you get to chew on a chocolate coated licorice root. Concludes with a touch of fine tannin, on a good length. Touch and go a point higher. 89
