Tahbilk Eric Stevens Purbrick Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

Tahbilk have an amazing back vintage catalogue for purchase. While completing a bit of research for this tasting note, I found that the 2003 and 2006 “ESPs” can still be bought at the current retail price. Now that’s just silly for a wine that has the longevity that this will.

Tahbilk, Eric Stevens Purbrick, Cabernet Sauvignon, Nagambie Lakes, 2015

Full and varietal: Blackcurrant and cedary/chocolatey oak prominent with savoury elements: liquorice, cigar tobacco and crushed eucalypt leaf. Layered and medium-full bodied, it celebrates fine tight grained tannins with ample, supple black fruit and a just chary oak finish giving a savoury end. Showing elegance and with fine sense of self, this is a long term prospect.

RRP: $72
Alc: 14%
Rating:  18.25/20  (93/100)
