Skillogalee Basket Pressed The Cabernets 2016 75cl
Tasting Note: "This Cabernet blend has a hugely aromatic impact with lifted black olive and tobacco leaf with hints of comforting sweet plum pudding and chocolate. The palate is generous and rich yet medium bodied, with finely grained mouth-watering tannin with toast and spice. Whilst enjoyable immediately, the natural acid backbone freshens the wine and the integrated tannins provide the structure that will reward careful cellaring. "
