Terre à Terre Crayeres Vineyard Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

Predominantly Cabernet Sauvignon (95%), with a small touch of Cabernet Franc (5%) from South Australia's Wrattonbully region. It's a 'Reserve' release, seeing a touch more new oak than the Cabernet from the same vintage/ vineyard reviewed here.

Certainly the Cabernet is not shy in expressing itself: cassis, with bay leaf savoury hints. Twists of black pepper. Primarily red fruited in nature: a mix that straddles redcurrant with - perhaps - cranberry. There's an initial intensity of fruit, a surge of primacy, fruit for sure, a twist of acid that serves to lengthen the wine's profile. 

The length - and continued intensity - mark this wine out. One for the cellar for sure. 93
