Mid red in a crimson core. Notes of fresh earth greet the nose. Aromas of balsam, dried juniper, bay leaf and red current. Background notes of Eucalypt and mint leaf add depth and layer. Fresh and buoyant with a medium to full bodied palate. Sweet fruited entry of red current, dried juniper, baked plum leads to a mid palate which turns savory and tight. The tannin profile has accents of fresh turned earth and fresh cedar. The finish is long and harmonious with complimentary notes of bay leaf, balsam and dried rosemary. All these combined to provide a plate that is long with lovely complex details and layers. An interesting wine that is both varietal and regional.

This medium-weight wine expresses lots of varietal character. Cab lovers will dig the savory, herbal, pencil lead and vanilla tones that weave into red fruit and florals. Sandy textured tannins hold the fruit, warm stone and earthy flavors together, and things finish on an herbal touch. The oak rears its head a little on the finish.

From the cooler McLaren Vale (when compared to the Barossa), the 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Sexy Beast sports a saturated purple color as well as a beautiful perfume of blue fruits, menthol, incense, and spring flowers. It's juicy, medium-bodied, and elegant on the palate, with a fresh, focused texture. It's a sexy little wine to drink over the coming 4-5 years.

The classically styled 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Sexy Beast features hints of mint and cocoa on the nose, alongside cassis and baking spices. It's medium to full-bodied, with a certain amount of varietal reserve, meaning it doesn't completely fill the mouth or coat the palate like Shiraz but shows a crisp, linear and well-defined finish.

Juicy, vivid blackberry and blueberry flavors have an appealing juicy side in this red, with plenty of herb and fresh earth notes and a good dash of Kalamata olive detail. Fresh, with tight tannins on the finish, but plenty of verve. Drink now through 2030. 10,000 cases made, 5,000 cases imported.
