Terre á Terre Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

Primarily Cabernet Sauvignon (95% ) with a (no required to declare portion) of Cabernet Franc. And oh what classy Cabernet it is. Oak is on hand here: wafery, cedar, pine forest, resinous; savoury perfume.

Fine, medium bodied wine, ultra fine tannin and freshening acidity. Plenty of red fruit here, raspberry and red currant - adding to that sense of freshness, can be considered Wrattonbully's calling card, and now we are seeing some vine age the terroir is showing.

Herb, seasoning cleaning up at the end - carried by that spine of acid. Feels somewhat 'bitsy' at present, a little flesh and pulling together. Where do we go now (sweet child o' mine)? 92+ 

Tasted on: Wednesday 10th August, a Flower day
