Future greatness

Redman Cabernet Sauvignon 2014, Coonawarra, AUD $32

An impressive, concentrated, structured wine, though it is still in an elementary state. Cool, intense black fruit, integrated acidity and structural tannin. Though you will need a little patience as this classic Coonawarra red is not nearly ready to drink, but it is perfectly poised for future greatness. Tuck away in the cellar for mid-to-long term ageing, if you can resist. (Cork)
