2015 Journeys End Coonawarra Station Cabernet Sauvignon
The fruit for this Cabernet was sourced from the Wetherall property - one of Coonawarra's best kept secrets. The family have been growing grapes for the big boys for decades from Terra Rossa blocks in the heart of Coonawarra, and the big boys have been happily making exceptional Coonawarra Reds without even a whisper as to where the grapes have come from!
With over 5 years bottle age under its belt, this is prime Coonawarra drinking.
Deep midnight black colour with a very dark red black tinged hue. Elevated scents of blackcurrant, mulberry and cedary tobacco characters are trailed by hints of black olive, dried herbs and spice. Medium to full in body, a wave of rich blackcurrant and mulberry fruits flood the mouth underscored by dusty vanillin cedar, tobacco leaf, black olive, dried herb and spice nuances. Still retaining good freshness, well integrated fine grained tannins provide excellent structure. Fleshy mouthfeel with a long dark fruited aftertaste that’s complexed by accents of dried herbs and tobacco. A classic Coonawarra Cabernet in all respects.
Drink over the next 2-3 years.
