Two Hands Sexy Beast Cabernet Sauvignon 2016
|Region||Australia, South Australia, McLaren Vale|
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.
