Claymore Wines, Black Magic Woman, Cabernet Sauvignon, Clare Valley, 2016

Dusty, herbal, chalky, yet full of black berries yet off set with cedary, fine pencil-shavings and hints of spearmint leaf. Full, powerful, chewy. Firmly in the black spectrum of the rainbow still manages to have life brightness and balance. A long term prospect with elegance and gravitas.

RRP: $50
Alc: 14.7%
Rating:  17.50/20
