Ringbolt, Cabernet Sauvignon 2020

(2022) Another label from the seemingly ubiquitous Hill-Smith family, this is from Western Australia, far from their Eden Valley homeland. It's an ocean-influenced Margaret River wine, around half of the blend aged in oak. Bold crimson/purple in colour, the nose has gravel and spice over savoury cherry and plum, a little bit of olive or green pepper in there for sure. In the mouth plenty of plush, deep-set chocolaty fruit, very sweet and ripe with quite fine tannins add a little sandy grain on the finish, that slightly green aspect adding to the sense of freshness.
