Totally opaque black dark red colour with a dark red hue. A mixture of ripe blackcurrant, plum and mulberry fruits greet the nostrils followed by vanillin cedar, light earth and bay leaf notes. Medium bodied and quite elegant the palate sports red to blackcurrant and mulberry flavours over plum, earthy tobacco, vanillin cedar and infusions of bay leaf. Fine grained yet sturdy tannin structure with a refined medium to long aftertaste.

Other Reviews….
I’ve never met Hamish MacGowan, the man behind Angus the Bull, but I admire the way he goes about it. This is his first step into Single Vineyard territory, or rather his first step under the Angus The Bull label. It’s a Cabernet Sauvignon from Heathcote.
It’s a firm, solid red built on an excellent frame of tannin though of course, curranty fruit is the star of the show. This is ripe but fresh, powerful but not overdone. Gum leaf, cocoa and red currant characters add to the positive impression. The pitch here is perfect. It has elegance but it also has plenty of flavour. Drink 2022-2032+
