Domaine A Stoney Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

Over 20 years ago, when I was at Uni and living the sharehouse life, Domaine A produced “home brand” Stoney Vineyard Cabernet in Magnums for a local, independent Hobart grocer that operated in Hill Street. I bought several of those for $30. How I’d give for a few of those remaining in the cellar! Domaine A now under the custodianship of the team at Moorilla.

Domaine A, Stoney Vineyard, Cabernet Sauvignon, Coal Valley, 2017

stoney-cabernet-2017

Fresh earth, warm blackberry, cassis liqueur, dark chocolate, cigar ash and with leafy cool climate tones of roast capsicum and bramble. Calm and with an old school tannin profile: slightly chewy tannins intertwined through cassis dark fruit and touches of animalistic leather, slathered in dark chocolate. Drink now to the next 5 years.

RRP: $35
Alc: 13.7%
Rating: 18.25/20 (93/100)
