17. Quickfire Cabernet Sauvignon (2008)

« Prev Next » 17 of 35
The nose here offers up an interesting blend of sweetness and earthiness with red currant fruit framed with notes of dried herbs, toasty oak, leather and earth. A little lighter bodied on entry than expected with a taut character driven by rather formidable, dry and yet not imposing tannins. The fruit here is fresh and elegant, with mulberry and plum edges. Acidity is well judged and the oak adds nice toasty spice and faint caramel complexity to the palate before receding a bit on the moderately long and lightly peppery finish. An understated wine and the kind of wine that won't make you stand up and take notice, but will be happily drained during the course of a meal. Refined and subtle. 91pts
