Brand & Sons Baker’s Run Cabernet Sauvignon 2018
Baker’s Run is a lovely tribute to Eric Brand, who was a baker before he was involved with wine, his profession after returning from War. Coonawarra Cabernet – a classic combination and not hard to see why. At this early stage, this is much more restrained and muted than the other wines in this set. It needs time. Hold off. Don’t waste it by drinking it now. Give it five years, or better still, ten. The structure is tight at the moment. Warm earth notes. Tobacco leaf and dry herbs. Black fruits. This is supple and seamless. The structure is excellent with fine, mouthcoating tannins. This is a wine with length that lingers, if that makes any sense and promises a decade of improvement at least. Give it that.
