Oakridge Original Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2018
A wonderful Cabernet from Oakridge. Age this long then sip slow when it's time to crack it open.
This saw 15 months in French oak. Still quite youthful, give it some bottle age and patience will reward.
Cut tomato bush, black olives plus sage and thyme entice early. Roasted peppers, fennel and aniseed maintain the savoury drive. Ribbons of black fruit and berries run through with ease. Delicately spiced, it's a cool climate Cabernet that is lusciously mouth-filling. Fine, grippy tannins draw things to a close. Big love for this this.
Drink 2022 to ten years+
