Value Vale cabernet

richard-hamilton-hut-block-cabernet-sauvignon-2014Richard Hamilton Hut Block Cabernet Sauvignon 2014, McLaren Vale, AUD $21

This deep red-purple cabernet is attractively scented with clean, ripe berry fruits and fine oak nuances. It’s medium-full bodied, intense, with lots of powdery tannins and a long finish. Violet, blueberry and cranberry flavours. Approachable now but with the structure to age. Outstanding value. (Screwcap)
