Houghton Jack Mann Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

One of the most collected wines in Australia, an iconic wine in all senses. From the Justin Vineyard in Frankland River this is actually a blend of 92% Cabernet and 8% Malbec.

Houghton, Jack Mann, Cabernet Sauvignon, Frankland River, 2016

 

Aromatic and lifted: perfumed cherry, cherry wood, leafy influences under black berry with classy oak vanilla paste influence and light cigar ash. The palate focused, intense and considered. The firm tannins rumble wonderfully, enjoyably offsetting the shiny black fruit. Iconic indeed. Cellar for another 20 years.

RRP: $144
Alc: 14%
Rating: 19/20
