SISTER’S RUN BETHLEHEM BLOCK CABERNET SAUVIGNON 2017 750ML

$24.99 $19.99

Direct, full and fine and precise Cabernet softness. A perfect Cabernet entry. Alert bright fruit. No callow Cabernet middle but instead rich soft mouth filling fruit, especially cassis and cedar. Juicy round blackberry sweetness, and red currant tartness tempered with some taut but typical Cabernet tannin. Wonderful cigar box and supple fruit flavour but properly taught tannin. Intense and complex but with a lightness of red berry flavours, which is surprising for such a full-on wine. This wine hangs about after you have tasted it for so long it seems almost self defeating, although you want another sip it is still in the mouth. Precise line and length that lingers on and on with cassis. Juicy, interesting and complex but with the fruit fullness of youth. Minutes later, the flavour still lingers.

Description

Colour: Deep purple – and when we say deep purple we mean deep purple with a regal purple hue.

Nose: Scented black currants, then rolling smells of black cherry and rhubarb, rhubarb and thrice rhubarb smells of, cedar, dark chocolate and clotted cream.

Entry: Direct, full and fine and precise Cabernet softness. A perfect Cabernet entry.

Middle Palate: Rich soft mouth filling fruit, especially cassis and cedar. Juicy round blackberry sweetness, and red currant tartness tempered with taught but typical Cabernet tannin.

After Palate: Wonderful cigar box and supple fruit flavour but properly taught tannin. Intense and complex but with a lightness of red berry flavours, which is surprising for such a wine.

Finish: Precise ‘line and length’ that lingers on and on with cassis. Juicy, interesting and complex but with the fruit fullness of youth. Minutes later, the flavour still lingers.

In Summary: Though this Cabernet will drink great now, especially with any full flavoured meat based dishes, it will undoubtedly cellar well.
