Deep dark red color. Aromas of currants, blueberry and juniper, bouquet garni and fresh earth. The palate is built on lots of fresh blue and red fruits. Bright flavours with energy and verve, along with hints of dusty earth, weave through the mid-palate with complexing notes of bay leaf, juniper and green tobacco leaf. Acid is fresh but balanced whilst tannins kick in mid palate and run long with the fruit prolife. Notes of coffee grounds and chocolate add complexity through the finish.
The classically styled 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Sexy Beast features hints of mint and cocoa on the nose, alongside cassis and baking spices. It's medium to full-bodied, with a certain amount of varietal reserve, meaning it doesn't completely fill the mouth or coat the palate like Shiraz but shows a crisp, linear and well-defined finish.
