Alkoomi Frankland River Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

Cherry like aromas, cedar and bay; good aromatics - with a little mint added In - on show here.

Cool, minty, has a big boned elegance; drying, with long and moderately assertive tannin. Needs a couple of years under its belt to bring some of the elements together, and allow the tannin to settle. 

Has a good line of acidity threaded like a fine seem through the wine, a guide for the development the wine needs just to pull together. Good for at least a ten stretch in the cellar.. 91 

Tasted on: Tuesday 21st June, a Fruit day
