2018 John Glaetzer John’s Blend No. 43 Cabernet Sauvignon
Matured for 43 months in seasoned French (80%) and American oak hogsheads. Dense midnight black core with a deep dark red black hue. Pronounced ripe blackcurrant scents are complimented by some liquorice, vanillin cedar, scorched earth and spicy tobacco notes. Smooth ripe blackcurrant fruits mark the palate upon entry with liquorice, vanillin oak, earthy leather and spice characters prominent on the back half. Polished tannin structure with vanillin oak and earthy leather characters lingering on the medium length aftertaste.
Drink over the next 3-4 years.
