Brand & Sons, Single Barrel, Cabernet Sauvignon, Coonawara, 2018

Choc mint fullness with large, ripe pulpy blackberry, big oak shavings, chomped cigar end, dark/moist turned earth, vanilla oak. Muscular, powerful but showing a svelteness. Brooding dark fruit but still leaving a delicate footfall. Dusty tannins (and plenty of them) through a long, flavour tail. Very good with intense concentration, just a little warm and oaky for true excellence.

RRP: $95
Alc: 14.5%
Rating: 18/20 (92/100)
