Hickinbotham Trueman Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

Hickinbotham wines ooze class. Single vineyard, the fruit is pristine and handled with kid gloves. Brace for power but with a soft caress all at the same time.



Cedar, vanilla, cassis get the juices flowing. Great width, it's a little drying through the mid-palate. Dried herbs are prominent with a deft touch of tomato bush and mint. The longer it lingers in the glass, some black olive appears. It's hard to resist the lure for more. Drying cocoa-like tannins close it out. Someone say roast lamb? Sensational!

Drinking well now but it will live well past a decade+
