Yelland & Papps Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

Deep, rich, strong - it certainly manifests itself as a fuller bodied version of Cabernet based on its aromatic introduction.

Blackcurrant, plummy character; there's a certain sheen and polish to it. It suggests more new oak treatment than its 18m in seasoned oak, the slickness, smoothness and sheen to proceedings making it seem more substantive than it actually is. 

Biggish, whilst it has an immediate presence, a lighter hand then shows - the Y&P mantra - followed by fruit. Fine rub of tannin; rich, dark chocolate on a good length. 90

Tasted on: Tuesday 6th March, a Flower day
