Mac Forbes Hugh Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2015

ARTISAN WINEMAKER MAC FORBES NAMES THIS, HIS FLAGSHIP WINE, TO HONOUR HIS FATHER HUGH. THIS IS MADE FROM BORDEAUX VARIETIES IN A MEDIUM-BODIED EXPRESSION.

"This Bordeaux blend is from Yarra Glen on a similarly aged block to that of our Gruyere site. Predominantly Cabernet Sauvignon and is complimented by Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Malbec. The Bordeaux blend is still arguably the most successful of all grapes or blends from the Yarra Valley. At relatively low alcohols the wines are elegant, perfumed and ripe. While approachable as a young wine – the 2015 Hugh will age gracefully for twenty plus years. In this wine Cabernet Sauvignon is the dominant variety and is complimented by Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot." - Mac Forbes

"Beautiful Cabernet, coming in with extra restraint gained from some bottle age. Raspberries, plum, juicy black and redcurrants are enhanced by the spice, licorice and cigarbox characters of age. The wine is held with a gorgeous acid line, with integrated tannin, making this long-flavoured Cabernet a gorgeous wine to enjoy now." - Wine House
