Heroic cabernet

Taltarni Cabernet Sauvignon 2016, Pyrenees, AUD $40-$45

This vintage has traditional Taltarni cabernet structure: heroic, with masses of tannin to help it age well and accompany hearty foods. Deep, dark colour; almond and chocolate aromas, the palate full-bodied and solid, with a serious tannin grip and terrific length. A wine of presence. (Screwcap)
