(2020) Aged for 18 months in used oak barrels,this Cabernet has just a smattering of vanilla over direct, ripe, clean blackcurrant fruit. In the mouth a nicely juicy fruit-filled mid-palate has more of that blackcurrant and damson plum, a touch of chocolate, smooth tannins and a balanced, easy-going finish. Great if you are lining up beef or venison for Christmas, or with hard cheeses too and even better, it is reduced to £7 in Tesco until 2nd January 2021.
