Wirra Wirra Angelus Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

When executed well, I am of the opinion that Cabernet Sauvignon can be McLaren Vale's hero variety. This, my pick of the Wirra Wirra 'flagship' releases, as d'Arenberg Coppermine Road often is.

Choc, choc-raspberry, gum leaf, cedar.

Light, lithe, cedar, herbal; gentle pitch of acidity, fine rub of tannin - familiar themes with these '13 premium releases from WW - black currant and dusky, dusty fruit. 

Again posseses an elegance, subtle, persistent the class of'13 top of their classes at some exclusive Swiss finishing school no doubt. Bravo. 94
