Dark and thick in appearance, this estate blend from winemaker Adam Henkel and proprietor Roger Bower shows a tremendous cassis aroma, with splashes of smoke, dried purple flowers and baking spice. The palate begins with a lavish entry of polished tannins that still have some teeth, providing tension that carries the dark fruit flavors deep into the finish.

The 2015 Estate Selection is a blend of 71% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Cabernet Franc, 9% Petit Verdot, 9% Malbec and 2% Merlot. Deep garnet-purple colored, it sings of perfumed kirsch, warm black cherries, cassis and plums with touches of rose hip tea, eucalyptus, baking spices, violets and fragrant earth. Full-bodied, rich and spicy in the mouth, it has a firm, velvety texture and loads of layers, finishing with a lively lift. 509 cases produced. - LPB

This beauty boasts a fabulous bouquet of blackcurrants, melted licorice, cigar wrapper, and tobacco leaf, with more spice and dried flower notes coming through with time in the glass. Deep, rich, full-bodied, and elegant, with beautiful purity as well as ripe tannin, it certainly has the class to drink nicely today, yet will be even better with 2-3 years of bottle age and keep for two decades.

The 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate Selection presents a more aromatic and red-toned profile than the Cabernet Sauvignon, most likely because of the presence of Cabernet Franc and other blenders. The last year has really helped the Estate Selection come together. I can't wait to see how it ages. -- Antonio Galloni

You can’t fault this powerful, cabernet-based red for lack of intensity, because the blackcurrant and forest-berry aromas blast out of the glass, and on the palate it packs a big punch of fruit and rather fine dry tannins. There’s also fresh acidity that stops this from coming off heavy and drives the intense finish. Try to wait until at least 2021.
