Hentley Farm Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

Cassis gives way to Woody aromatics: cigar box, old soaked wood. There's an underlying peaty edge to the wine - gives a savoury point to that fruit that leads. 

Sweet black fruit leads, making way for some jangly blackcurrant acidity, that then manifests itself as a bitter edge. Dark cocoa bitterness, powder fine tannin, but I can escape the sharpness of the acidity. 

Probably the least accomplished of the releases in this bout of samples - not quite
Cohesive a as the others. 88
