2011 Cabernet Sauvignon

$34.00

Magnificent Cabernet fruit and subtle French oak combine to make this supple, complex wine. Rich, slightly stalky flavours turn into classic cigarbox characters and will become even more intriguing and complex in the years to come.

Tasting Note

The bouquet is as perfect an expression of Cabernet Sauvignon as Peel has ever produced. There’s mulberries and blueberries, along with milk chocolate. But the overall impression is of ripe fruit.

The palate is round and soft and very long. It seems to mellow as it rolls along. In among the luscious fruit is a certain elegance and the natural restraint of Cabernet, brought about by its tannin structure. The ripeness is checked by lovely fine grape tannins and very judicious use of new oak, blending into a long, silky finish. This is still a baby at 6 years, but drinking deliciously.

Drink: Now – 2022
