Jim Brand Silent Partner Cabernet 2013

Right in the slot of a great drinking Coonwarra Cabernet.

Burnt toffee and coffee aromas join expected black fruits. Smooth through the mouth, a touch of dried Mediterranean herb and choc mint rear their heads late supporting the fruit beautifully. Tannins are sapping and drying and urge another sip - it's hard to say no I must admit.

Hold off another year or two for best drinking but will live easily to eight years.

92/100 - Very good
