Lakes Folly Cabernets

Celebrating its 50th anniversary this year, the legendary vineyard of Lake’s Folly is an oasis of exceptional cabernet (and friends) in a region of shiraz and semillon. 2011 is one of its great expressions, leaping out of the glass with a beautiful bouquet of lifted violets, dark berry compote and liquorice. The palate melds deep berry fruits with well-gauged dark chocolate oak to build finely textured and supple tannins of great persistence. Fruit expression is generous and approachable, with tannin poise and impeccable 2011 acid support ensuring a promising future. Best price direct.
