Knappstein Enterprise Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

The Enterprise vineyard was planted in 1962 in the Clare's north and sits on Terra Rossa soils.

Glenn Barry has really shaken up what he is doing at Knappstein and this Cabernet is schmick.

Green capsicum, leafy, dark berries and chocolate are interwoven nicely with a dusting of dried savoury herbs and a little mint. Quite fresh, it has an adolescent excitement about it's delivery. The fruit is neatly balanced and full in delivery. Juicy black fruits shuffle through to a long and satisfying finish.

Give it a couple of years before you pass the lamb.

Excellent.
