A heap of blackberries on the nose supported by mint, nutmeg and a herbal edge. Dry, full bodied with medium acidity. All structure on the palate but achieves a smoothness. More herbal and leafy on the flavours rather than fruit. Good varietal and regional example.
Langmeil Blacksmith Cabernet Sauvignon 2019, Barossa Valley, SA
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.
