Deep, ripe black fruit aromas and flavors provide the framework for a richly concentrated wine with generous notes of fresh plum, currant and black cherry that stretch across a long, textured finish.
Langmeil Blacksmith Cabernet Sauvignon, Barossa AUST 2014
This shows aromatic red currants, bay leaf and sage on the nose, then folds in hints of cinnamon and brown sugar. The oak is in the background, letting the fruit carry the wine, yet building in a rich, velvety texture.
