Cabernet Sauvignon

Long Meadow Ranch, Cabernet Sauvignon, 1996

RRP £120

Strong aromas of what they call “old armoire”, a lavender-perfumed oaken wardrobe in a fine old baronial room. It’s evolved, though still with a hint of hay and mocha, the palate rich and modest, taking a while to open up having been sleeping for two decades. There are figs, raisins and even a note of old Pedro Ximenez or kirsch, a lovely flavour developing in the glass. Pleasing; fresh and juicy at the end.
