Deep intense nose of blackberries, black cherries and toasty vanilla oak. Full bodied rich with new leather oak and more black fruits. A supporting touch of mint and herbal bouquet garni. Well integrated tannins and still driven by primary fruit, at present, so it will likely age well. Warm, comforting, long finish.
Brown Brothers Patricia Cabernet Sauvignon 2016, Victoria
Outstanding (Score range 95-100)
Often an internationally recognised, leading brand or winery – but not always! Produces a classic wine that is a faultless representation of the style/variety. Complexity on the nose and a seamless palate are an example of the hallmarks of an outstanding wine.
Highly Recommended (Score range 92-94)
A quality focused wine that has plenty of style. Length of palate and intensity are often key characteristics of highly recommended wines. These producers could be the ones to watch in the future.
Recommended (Score range 89-91)
An above average well-made, reflection of the style/variety, which often represents good value for money.
