Dowie Doole The Architect Cabernet Sauvignon 2019


From the team’s estate vineyard at Blewitt Springs, one of the most highly regarded sub-regions of McLaren Vale, this hails specifically from Block E. 1,300 bottles produced and under cork, the colour is an inky dark maroon. Good concentration and extraction is immediately apparent. Dark berries, soy, tobacco leaves, coffee grinds, spices and chocolate with an underlying hint of cassis. Seamless and seductive texture, good focus, silky tannins, bright acidity and excellent balance. The palate sees notes of licorice emerge. A wine with at least ten years of providing drinking pleasure ahead of it.
