A Superb Cabernet Sauvignon from Woodlands that showcases the generosity of the outstanding 2014 Margaret River vintage.
A blend of 94% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Malbec and 2% Cabernet Franc with maturation taking place in new French medium toast barrels for 19 months. Excellent colour displaying a totally opaque black dark red core with a deep bright dark red hue tinged with black. Possessing both refinement and potency sniffing reveals aromatics of red and black currant fruits interwoven with mulberry over vanillin cedar, faint cigar box, hints of black olive, bay leaf and other spicy dried herb notes. Ratching up the level of richness and concentration by a notch or two on the past few vintages the palate delivers mouthfilling flavours of ripe red and black currant fruit as well as mulberries which are overlaid by vanillin cedar. Underscoring the fruit are nuances of tobacco, faint bay leaf and spicy dried herbs. The wood is prominent but there’s more than enough richness and power to the fruit to carry it, ensuring that it will largely be absorbed over time. Refined, elegant mouthfeel. Outstanding length with a structured set of tannins beautifully interwoven with all of the component parts. Very long finish of red and black currant, mulberry, spicy vanillin cedar, subtle infusions of tobacco, bay leaf and dried herbs.
Cellar 10-12 years.
Tasted as a barrel sample that is due to come out of oak in two to three weeks' time from tasting, the 2014 Matthew Cabernet Sauvignon shows deep garnet-purple in color. On the palate, it is rich, ripe and very intense, with firm ripe tannins and great length. This wine has great potential!
