2020 Brash Higgins CBSV - cabernet sauvignonRegular price $44.00
It's big (ish), its Cabernet and its from McLaren Vale. Yum.
Spicy pepper, wafts of bramble and loads of purple fruit. Plums of many varieties even pickled. The palate is all about layers, blueberries and blackberries and plums mixing with black olives and eucalyptus. Wonderfully savoury tannins and just the vaguest hint of red fruit at the very back. Like I said....yum.
"I like what I taste here. Joyous fruit, both fresh and forthright, accompanied by a push of chewy tannin. Liquorice and boysenberry, cassis and earth flavours are the wine’s mainstay, though there’s subtle mint and sawdust notes here too. Freshness is the key though. Purity. Finesse, even. The word craft sprang to mind, always a good sign. I’d drink this young."
