Ubertas Shiraz Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

Second of two samples from Ubertas, here a "Great Australian Red". Will appeal to classicists, with a ready throw of vanilla and toffed oak sitting proud.

Black licorice notes add a certain depth, succulence of black fruit softens that impact on the palate. Pepper. The oak tannin at this stage feels rather blocky, needing some time to settle. 

Yet, still, it does provide a frame for the fruit to sit and to deliver on a good length. Will serve it well into the future - if you've the patience to keep your hands off of it! 92+
