True blue cabernet

Hickinbotham Trueman Cabernet Sauvignon 2015, McLaren Vale, AUD $75

The colour is very deep red/purple, the bouquet superbly ripe and fruit-driven with notes of blackberry, mulberry, raspberry and violet, and none of the greener touches. It’s medium to full-bodied, undeniably cabernet in character, with a firm tannin backbone providing structure. (Screwcap)
