Huntington Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2009

Interesting release strategy as a 7 year old.

Leathery, black fruits, residual oak. Has a big nose, more about the aged characteristics than the primary. 

Retains a semblance of freshness through acidity but it doesn't have much else to jostle with that: no fruit, and it's really the savoury back end the provides the wine's final conclusion. 

Won't offer any improvement. 87 

Tasted on: Tuesday 26th July, a Leaf to Fruit day
Source: Sample
