"One of the best values I’ve tasted in a long time, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon from the team at K Vintners was hand-harvested, natively fermented and aged all in French oak. Smoking good notes of cassis, black currants and hints of plum all emerge from this rich, beautifully textured, layered beauty that has solid tannic grip, a silky, elegant texture and a great finish. It has real elegance and finesse and is a dark fruited, unctuous beauty to drink over the coming 3-4 years." (WA)

"(not inoculated for either the alcoholic or malolactic fermentation; aged for 12 months in barrels, 40% new): Bright ruby. Slightly porty high-toned ripeness to the aromas of cassis, redcurrant, black cherry, licorice, dark chocolate and cocoa powder. In a distinctly sweet, ripe style, with its slight warmth nicely buffered by a huge mouthful of fruit and leavened by firm natural acidity. Finishes with a serious dusting of horizontal tannins. This powerful, slightly unrefined Cabernet is a seriously good value." (VM)

Winery Notes:
Rich, dark,unctuous, brooding and deep. Delicious, complex and compelling. Smooth, long and amazing. A wine of true substance.
