Singlefile Frankland River Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

Alcohol starting to creep up for this marque from the Great Southern, but elegance is still present.

Singlefile, Frankland River, Cabernet Sauvignon, Great Southern, 2016SWSV05-Singlefile Frankland River Cab Sauv

A chary and tarry coffee nose to open with plenty of black olive and cassis. Some meatier, ‘bonox’ notes over plush leather and cigar ash to give a savoury edge to blackberry flesh. Grainy tannins spread fan-like underneath to svelte, elegance. A thoroughly modern Cabernet with brightly lit black fruit and hint of varietal eucalypt with a strong finish.

RRP: $37
Alc: 14.5%
Rating: 18/20
