Appearance: Deep dark garnet red with a black core. Aroma: Notes of redcurrant, tobacco, bay leaf, juniper, fresh earth and mulberry. Mouth Feel: Fresh and lively through the entry with plenty of bright red fruits and energy. Tannins begin rounded and broad, then tighten through the finish providing a gentle savoury quality and considerable length. The acid profile is very bright and fresh. The palate is complimented with notes of redcurrants, mulberry, and juniper. Depth and layers are found in the form of bay leaf and dried herbs whilst the palate touches on notes of tobacco, earth and ash.
For an inky hued New World wine, there's an awful lot of classic to the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Sexy Beast. Start with the nose of pencil shavings and cassis. Add a streamlined, medium to full-bodied palate that shows genuine Cabernet structure-firm acids and crisp edges. Yes, it's bold, flavorful and approachable young, but it also fits into Cabernet's varietal tradition.
Opens with a mouthful of wild blackberry, blueberry and dried cherry flavors, showing nice purity of fruit and supple tannins. A juicy accent lingers on the finish, with touches of orange zest, spice, black tea and pepper. Drink now through 2028. 9,000 cases made.
