The 2019 Heirloom Coonawarra Cabernet offers aromas of cassis, green herbs, succulents, and just bloomed African Violets. At the core of this wine is a blackhole of pure cassis and unalloyed black currant. The seamless structure promotes silkiness, yet it is underscored so definitively by super fine tannins that swirl around a heart of dense mid-palate fruit. Black and blueberry, on point mulberry, green tobacco leaf, a charred and skinned red pepper.
