Huntington Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2009

The vineyard on which the fruit is grown was planted in the early 1970's. This wine is always released at five years of age - and surprisingly cheap for a wine held back for so long.

Blackberries and blackberry jam, blueberries, some cedar and vanilla oak. It thins out a little in the mouth before drying and chalky tannins round it out. A bit more vibrancy needed though to get me completely engaged - I did have it in a decanter for two hours before tasting though.

A hearty stew would be a suitable food match.

Will cellar for another ten years.
