Raidis Estate Billy Cabernet Sauvignon 2012
Dark but vibrant in appearance, the freshness leaps from the glass immediately on pour.
There's a little bit of smokeyness but the juicy fruit is what keeps drawing me in. It's luscious. The oak very much plays a supporting role.
Dark berries reign supreme more so than the minty/capsicum traits many Cabernets dish up. Sapping, voluptuous tannins to finish.
Across the board these Raidis wines are smart and consistent.
A special to cut through fatty lamb.
