Deep garnet-purple in color and intensely scented of blackcurrant cordial, warm plums and eucalyptus with hints of cedar, toast and cloves, the medium to full-bodied 2012 The Davey Estate Cabernet Sauvignon gives loads of clove-laced, cassis flavor wrapped around a solid frame of medium level grainy tannins and balanced acidity. It finishes with good persistence. Drink it now to 2018+.
Deep red. Cassis, violet and blueberry aromas seduce, enhanced by attractive notes of cedar, bay leaf and wet slate. An explosion of bright and pretty berry fruit flavours flow over the palate, guided by chewy tannins, mineral elements and a balanced acidity. A full-bodied, varietal Cabernet Sauvignon, with the richness of fruit to satisfy now and the structure that will reward the patient with the complexity that careful cellaring brings.
