Santa Barbara County, California
Plush layers of black currant, spearmint and bacon fat spilling in to kirsch, squashy blueberries and hints of tobacco. Don’t expect something overcooked and huge, just expect a wonderfully sumptuous, lifted Cabernet that dances across the palate encouraging you to take another sip. A sure crowdpleaser and dinner party favourite. Sourced from three sites that Andrew manages, the wines spends 10 months in barrel with about 30% new American oak.
