Allegiance Wines The Foreman Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon 2021


Sixteen days on skins before pressing, racked off lees, and then fermented in French oak for a year, 15% of which was new. This is an opaque but vibrant purple. Burly and concentrated with notes of chocolate, aniseed, dry herbs, blackberries and cloves. A hint of mocha and very well integrated, if cedary, oak. With a supple texture, decent length, with fine if furry tannins, this should provide thoroughly enjoyable drinking for eight to ten years. Indeed, the longer you leave the wine in the cellar before opening, the better as the score will lift over this time.
