Dark red with a hint of purples. This is tight, even closed at this early stage. Coiled power here. Aromas including cigar box notes, espresso, black fruits, chocolate. This has that typical young Cabernet austerity. Very fine tannins too and very good length with deceptive grip. The structure of this wine is unmissable and impressive. It is young, but it is ever so promising. For current drinking from the Macclesfield range the whites are probably the pick, but in five years, ten or more for this Cabernet, the reds will be the real stars. Expect the score to climb.
