Hither & Yon Cabernet Sauvignon Petit Verdot 2012

Purple aromatics emanate from the glass: violets, blackcurrant, florals general - switches to a little black fruit and mint. Smells like new French oak, except it's bot, vanilla then - OK?

Quite ripe, forward - as befits the year - black fruited. Hints of licorice, herb, cassis/blackcurrant here too. Not over-ripe, made in an easy going style and alcohol wise, quite restrained. Very much a house style emerging across the H&Y portfolio.

The finish reminded me of the 'cake' from the press at vintage - a little bit savoury, of juniper and cedar - all up a combination that just made me want meat. Capisce? 90
