Howard Park Abercrombie Western Australia Cabernet Sauvignon

The warm 2012 season in Great Southern and Margaret River has built an Abercrombie of impressive black fruit depth, yet retaining the control and determination to see out a very long life. A beautifully focused, exquisite bouquet of blackcurrant, cassis, black cherries, cedar and tobacco announces a generous yet compact palate, with a focused and deep core of blackcurrant and cassis fruit. Notes of liquorice and dark chocolate linger long through a honed finish, sustained by fine, sinewy, tightly structured tannins. Another great in the lineage of Abercrombie. $94 at Wine Box Warehouse.
