Curtis Cavaliere McLaren Vale Cabernet Sauvignon 2018


A fine example of a warmer climate Cabernet from a cracking vintage. Good McLaren Vale Cab flies under the radar, but it can provide superb drinking. This wine was matured in a mix of French and American oak, partly new and up to two years in age. An inky dark maroon hue. This is a deeply flavoured Cab, with notes of black fruits, cigar boxes, warm earth, beef stock, chocolate, bay leaves, coffee grinds and licorice while the oak is well integrated. This is rich and firm, well-structured with a long finish so drink for ten to fifteen years.
