Knee Deep Birdhouse Cabernet Sauvignon 2019


This is classic cabernet. Anyone new to wine looking for a fine example of what the grape should be, need look no further. The firm structure, good flavours up front and an intense and long finish; good use of oak which is integrating well; notes of black fruits, blackberries, leather, cloves, dry herbs, tobacco leaves and capsicum; fine but firm tannins; obvious potential for ageing. It is all here. There is still some oak evident but, as noted, good integration. Plenty of tannins, but good balance, and it maintains the intensity throughout. This will improve over time.
