Bremerton Walter’s Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

A new wine from Bremerton for me. Big and bold, makes its presence known with an oak cloaked fist that smashes you on the nose: it sees 20 months in new French barriques, its resinous and clearly built for the long haul.

More of the same on the palate, with refined, structural tannins that will clearly provide a framework to reward cellarability. Underneath that oak there’s glimpses of the substantive blackcurrant fruit that will serve this in good stead.

Leave for at least another 2-3 years before approaching and consider cellaring for up to 20. 92+
