Terre á Terre Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

I was almost prepared to write it off this wine from the Terre á Terre close planted vineyard down at Wrattonbully, such was the relaxed manner in which it chose to open up for me.

It's 95% Cabernet Sauvignon with a small addition (5%) of Cabernet Franc.

Quite reserved initially, slowly unfurling, red fruit showing its wares. Medium bodied, ultra-fine tannin, have a little roll around the palate; it has presence, building, yielding a little more each time. 

Lingering finish. Tight, fine tannin. 92+ and I'm suspecting that could prove foolishly conservative.
