Singlefile, The Philip Adrian, Cabernet Sauvignon, Frankland River, 2015

Such a colour! Deep cherry-baked dessert with sweet plums, blackberry, attractive perfumed violets and a tobacco leaf heart.  Dark chocolate and coffee/mocha with ripping tannins underpinning layers of slick black fruit complemented by fresh bay leaf and bitter herbs. Power, opulence and excellence.
