2019 Jasper Hill Emily's Paddock Heathcote Shiraz Cabernet Franc
Under allocation this year.
Ripe plum, green olive, nougat and brown spice, lots of oak, lots of booze-soaked ripe fruit. All does well in its way. Slick and rich to taste, supple and flows well, all components well integrated, exceptional length and palate-staining persistence with a slightly too breathy finish, but you get the gist its going to work out. Chunky, chewy, deep but with good flow. Bold, big red done well.
