The 2017 Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon is composed from a selection of Cabernet from the gentle slope and the steep hillside terraces of the Tierra Roja vineyard and it is absolutely stunning. This instantly opens to aromas of beautifully ripe black currants, which come together with graphite, herbs, tobacco, fresh violets and hints of dusty notes that all take shape in the glass. On the palate this possesses a medium to full body with wonderful opluence and a gorgeous seamless quality. It goes on to display outstanding overall balance, with a core of ripe dark fruits that is underlined by a lovely sense of minerality leading up to the incredibly long, voluptous finish. This is an absolutely sensational Cabernet that drinking beautiful today, but should go on to offer a drinking window that spans two decades.
