"Black fruit, black olives, leaf, spicy biscuit and pencil oak, mint, chocolate. Medium bodied, flush in the mouth, pixel fine tannin, even but crisp acidity, and a long tobacco tinged finish. Terrific."The Wine Front, 2014
The sixth vintage of Castelli Cabernet Sauvignon from this vineyard show an amazing consistency of site terroir. The wine has a purity of classic Cabernet aromas of sweet brambleberries with some overlaid mocha and dark chocolate nuances. The palate is medium to full bodied and the fine layered tannins form a solid core that is perfectly balanced with the fuit flavour and oak. For the first time with this wine we have used a small addition of Malbec to give some suppleness to the mid-palate and rounded tannin. This well structured wine will age well over the next 10 years - See more at: http://castelliestate.com.au/wines/castelli/2012-cabernet-sauvignon/#sthash.itdaQUXN.dpufcastelliestate.com.au
