Small Batch Wines | 2013 Vine Dried Cabernet Sauvignon
- Gary Walsh, The Wine Front 2013 Vine Dried Cabernet 93 points
It’s from their ‘Small Batch’ range of wines, though this is presumably so small, that I can’t find it on their website at all! Made in the ‘Moda Amarone’ style, the style which dare not speak its name, but in this case constitutes 25% vine dried fruit (not rack), in the ‘Italian tradition’.
Good stuff this. All dried cherries, dried flowers, licorice, hazelnut chocolate and new leather with a fair bit of lift. Full bodied, sour and sweet cherry, plump silky tannin bobs up and down – firm/soft/firm/soft – then a bright sour cherry finish cleans up, and goes pretty long. A good play at this style.
