Woodlands 'Margaret' 2007

Beautifully poised blend of 67% Cabernet, 17% Merlot, 16% Malbec that spent 18m in French oak (2/3 new, balance 1yo), looking sharp at ten years of age.

Classic nose of a maturing Cabernet blend. Balancing residual freshness with gum, hints of pencil shaving, cassis. It's just wonderfully enticing, balanced - exactly what I want from a 10yo Cabernet blend. 

Exquisitely medium bodied, resolved graphite tannin. There's still a generous plummy fruit presence in the middle, lending an immediate presence before a length of fine tannin. 93 

Tasted on: Sunday 9th July, a Fruit day
