Angullong, Crossing Reserve, Cabernet Sauvignon, Orange, 2018

Angullong-CR-Cab2018

Plenty of varietal components on show: turned earth, cedary and creamy oak, pencil shavings with bramble, blackberry conserve, crushed old mint leaf and smoky bresaola cues. Slick and low slung Cabernet with a warmth and depth like a baked blackberry tart. Fine and gravelly tannins with a medium length to the focused finish punctuated by a bittersweet orange citrus freshness. Nicely done and ready to go now or in the medium term.

RRP: $48
Alc: 14.5%
Rating: 18.25/20 (93/100)
