2021 - 2048

Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon George III Vineyard exudes an achingly graceful, complex perfume of oolong tea, rose hips, lilacs, fallen leaves and tilled loam with a core of blackcurrant cordial, kirsch, redcurrant jelly and warm plums with wafts of aniseed and incense. Full-bodied, with a solid backbone of super ripe, velvety tannins and oodles of freshness backing up the rich, highly focused and oh-so-stunning red and black fruit layers, it finishes long, lifted and perfumed.
