K1 by Geoff Hardy Cabernet Sauvignon 2009

Gee I enjoyed this.

Great colour and a soft attractive nose. Plenty of dried herbs, blackberry, blackcurrant and plums.

Lots of juicy fruit with all those characters reappearing on the palate. An impressive length leaving softish grippy tannins.

The highlight for me was the texture. Supple and moreish..

Twenty months in two to five year old French (80%) and American oak has added nicely but not dominating the fruit. Very appealing. Very good.

Would I buy it...yes!
