Another estate-grown stunner! The 2018 Southern Roots Cabernet Sauvignon leads with classic aromas of currant, eucalyptus/mint, licorice, black cherry, tobacco and cracked black pepper. Tannins are present, but balanced and promise aging through 2035, but the wine is approachable now with flavors of bright boysenberry, cassis, fresh leather and brown sugar. The clean mouthfeel lingers through a long finish. Drink now though 2035.
