JJ Hahn, Reginald Shiraz Cabernet 2014
"A quintessentially Australian blend of 85% shiraz and 15% cabernet sauvignon, this is all violet, black cherry, cassis and root beer sass. Gently extracted to maximise the wine's energy, this is a fun parry of bright fruits, set against a thrust of acidity and dusty tannins." - James Halliday
A full-bodied, full-flavoured classic is the promise behind the very deep brick red colour. Notes of tea leaf, cedar, sweet berries, spice, chocolate and cigar box aromas fill the glass. Ripe black forest fruits and spice are balanced by rounded tannins and seamless structure. The palate reflects the nose with flavours of cedar, stewed fruit and cigar box. Fine drying tannins. A pleasant lingering finish with restrained oak notes of mocha and tobacco. A fresh vibrant palate with good depth of flavour and layers of fruit.
