St Johns Road Line & Length Cabernet Sauvignon
Line and Length is a phrase often used to describe fine wines, and here it’s on display in spades. Cabernet from the Barossa is a serious proposition when made well. This wine has a nice cricket analogy comparing a bowlers line and length to the precision of a premium Cabernet. Prepare to be bowled over by aromas of blackcurrant, cherry and cedary oak before the palate hits a six with real flavour and gentle tannin support.
Deep cherry red with a nose loaded with fruit, red liquorice and cassis. Cherries and chocolate spring to mind! The palate delivers layers of plump, juicy, ripe fruit, dense in texture and supported by the cassis and dark chocolate. The mouth feel is particularly luscious, yet true to the varietal it is also elegant and balanced.
