The 2017 Crossroads Cabernet Sauvignon from Rudd Estate is absolutely fabulous in this vintage. Made from 100% Estate fruit, this it instantly opens to inviting aromatics of black cherries, currants, spices which are underlined with graphite, violets, fresh tarragon, licorice along with lovely hits of sweet toasted nuances all bursting from the glass. On the palate this possesses a gorgeous medium to full body, which is well-polished with outstanding balance of fruit and acidity leading up to the long, velvety, spice-tinged finish. This is already drinking beautifully and it should also go on to have a wonderful future ahead.
