2014 Cabernet Sauvignon, Steffensen Vineyard, Coombsville

Aromas of dark berries, bark and dark chocolate. Full body, soft and silky tannins and a delicious finish. Very polished and pretty. Hard not to drink now but needs two or three years of bottle age.

“A big and dense red with berry and chocolate character. Toasted oak, too. Full-bodied, powerful and a little burning on the finish.”

"A powerful cabernet sauvignon, but this shows tension and texture with lightly chewy tannins and a fresh finish. Needs two or three years to soften, but it's all here.”
