Wine Region: Barossa Valley - Australia Grape: Cabernet Sauvignon
Tasting notes: Steely graphite, pomegranate liveliness and seared pepper-crusted beef. Dried herbs aromatically circle around the varietal cabernet fruit. On the palate, white cherries and cranberry follow aromatic pomegranate, bringing an associated succulence that borders on austerity. Fine silky tannins, a steely core, graphite, and ferric backbone provides shape. A solid framework for the fruit and tannins to hinge upon.
