Huntington Estate Block Three Cabernet Sauvignon 2011

Quite an elegant wine which lets the fruit shine. A far cry from a big and robust Cabernet.

Give it some air. Black fruits, dark chocolate, cloves with savoury finesse plus a hint of leafiness too. There's a whack of oak but it doesn't wrestle the focus away from the fruit entirely. Only 13.6% alcohol, the fruit is super soft and sits long.

To be critical, the choice of bottle looks cheap and takes the prestige away from what is inside. Thank goodness we don't drink the glass!

Very good.
