Gartelmann Jonathan Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

Sees 14m in a mix (new/old) American and French oak. It's a bold and powerful wine, oak remnants with seasoning - by way of herb, cedar. Fruit is not forgotten, blackcurrant with a touch of violet in the frame too.

Acid is fresh and at you, tart Blueberry like, bright in how it comes across. Tannins pucker. Up nicely, delivering flavour long in the palate. Drink to 2030. 92
