Shingleback Davey Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

This comes as a museum release and part of “The Pick,” which is Shingleback’s wine club: I don’t believe this label is still produced commercially. Aged for average 15 months in French oak.

Shingleback, Davey Estate, Cabernet Sauvignon, McLaren Vale, 2012

Showing a little development on the nose, with earthier tones emerging: campfire remnants (eucalypt and ash) over primary blackberry, pencil and regional chocolate. The palate still tight with the knitted tannins starting to loosen and become gravelly. Ready to go now

Alc: 14%
Rating: 17/20
