(2022) From the historic Mission Estate, 100% Cabernet Ssauvignon which spent 12 months in French oak, 25% new. With a few year in bottle the nose has a little earthy, bloody plum character, maybe just a smidgen of volatility showing too. The palate is dry and has a savoury blend of tapenade and riper black fruit flavours. Cedary oak adds an old world dimension, with roughening tannins and good acidity make for classic, Bordeaux-style drinking.
