This pinnacle release Cabernet Sauvignon is crafted from the very finest fruit selection and is entirely estate grown and bottled on the Taylor family estate in the Clare Valley, South Australia.
In the glass the wine is a dark red with a vibrant crimson hue. On the nose, the wine is subtly perfumed with blackcurrant, dark plum, cassis, blueberries, mocha, cedar, cigar box and choc-mint. On the palate the wine is rich and complex with an understated elegance. Classic blackcurrant, dark cherry and varietal mint characters intertwine perfectly with the hallmark long, fine tannins on the palate. There is a subtle, underlying smoky, charred oak character and a hint of roasted coffee grounds on the back palate. The finish is perfectly poised and boldly declares the stature of the wine; full of the potential for greatness.
