Houghton Gladstones Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

A sip of this and I felt I was driving a Rolls Royce after pushing a Datsun 120y around town for years. First class stuff and then some.

Everything here is pristine and sleek. Cassis, capsicum, bay leaf, dark berries, black currant. Tremendously smooth delivery. Effortless. Powdery tannins waltz through with ease.

After three days on the bench it held itself together with distinction. Welcome to pleasure country.

Ready to go now but will cellar long term.

Excellent.
