Raidis Estate 'Billy' Cabernet Sauvignon 2010

Dry grown and harvested from a single vineyard, the wine sat in French oak 18 months.

Leafy, slight capsicum, black fruits and some faint oak are all very inviting. The wine's brightness and juicy characters are easily picked up from just one whiff.

A fruit forward style with plenty of juicy black fruit and blackberry jam flavours prominent.

Wonderfully soft in the mouth, the wine has a delicious length with supple tannins which last longer than a minute.

Packed and driven by fruit there is lots to like. Lots!

Priced very well for $25 and I wine I'd happily enjoy now to get the most from that vibrant fruit. Aging the wine medium term will do it no harm either.
