Brand & Sons Sanctuary Cabernet Sauvignon 2015
This is the real deal. Coonawarra Cabernet which spent 24 months in oak and has resulted in a wonderful wine. This is the initial release of this wine and it promises to be the first of a long line of stunning Coonawarra Cabernets. Much to be very excited about.
Inky black in colour with concentration and complexity here. Flavours ride the wave through blackberries, truffles, chocolate, a hint of mint. There is oak but superb integration. This is like drinking chocolate silk. The tannins are ever so satiny and the wine has great length. The intensity is maintained right throughout that length. Vibrant acidity but it never intrudes. Balance here is key and such potential. This is a fine example of a classic Coonawarra Cabernet, one which has a decade or more of improvement in it. Stunning.
