Wine of the Week AU

Blackstone Paddock Cabernet Sauvignon 2016, Margaret River, AUD $18

The colour is deep, rich red/purple and it smells of lovely ripe cassis cabernet fruit backed by subtle but classy oak. Ripeness is spot on: blackcurrant, violet and blueberry nuances. There’s outstanding depth of flavour with remarkable balance and elegance at the price. (Screwcap)
