Flametree Embers Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

A vibrant Cabernet walking on the balls of its feet. Ready to go now and sure to please.

Bright fruits exhibiting varietal traits. Sourced from three sub-regions of Margaret River, the energy here is contagious. Each portion was fermented separately before seeing old French oak for twelve months.

Loaded with black fruits, bay leaf and chocolate, the acid is a little tight but certainly doesn't detract. Some leafy characters hum along. Cedar swoops late leading to a soft and smooth finish with plenty of give.

Drink now to five years.
