St Johns Brook Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 750ml 2016
Awards: 96 Points Halliday Wine Companion
"There is more new wood on this cuvee, bridling greater intensity of flavours and ageworthiness. Hand plunged, before spending nine-months in French barriques, this is a pointed cabernet of well alloyed ball-bearing tannins melding with the cedar oak spice to coat the mouth. Behind lies currant, pastille, olive and bay leaf, to be liberated further with time in the cellar. This is excellent." - Ned Goodwin

Intense blackberries, cassis and a dusting of cocoa on the nose. Abundant dark berries, black olive and cedary oak merge with fine tannins to create an elegant wine with a long finish.
Small batches of the best fruit were hand plunged. Matured in 50% new French oak for 14 months.
