First Drop MCLAREN VALE CABERNET SAUVIGNON MOTHER'S RUIN 2017
|Australia, South Australia, McLaren Vale
After a run of Shirazes, this is so distinctive in its unashamed Cabernet character. Leafy, minty cassis with a strong cassis-leaf fresh aroma. Dry, super-fine tannins giving shape to this lovely Cabernet fruit, which is cool and fresh.
Impressive for the purity and intensity of the blueberry, wild strawberry and framboise flavors, this red is fresh and juicy, with green tea, black pepper and fresh loamy accents, plus spice and tobacco grace notes, on a smooth frame. Drink now through 2030. 2,000 cases made, 500 cases imported.
