Xanadu Stevens Road Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

Xanadu Stevens Road Cabernet 2015 Deep, bright, youthful red/purple colour with a lifted fragrance recalling violets and both red and darker fruits, a touch of briar and some tomato bush. It's full-bodied and softly fleshy, chewy-textured and tight-packed, with lots of extract and density. There's a trace of regional peatiness. Very good wine, and it will repay cellaring. From Block 3 of the vineyard that Xanadu knows like the back of its hand. Static fermented, 28 days post-ferment maceration, matured for 14 months in French barriques (40% new). Combines elegance with length, intensity and balance. Blackcurrant, earth, black olive and cabernet tannins all chime in on the heavy lifting - this at 14% alcohol tells it all. Drink to: 2030; Date Tasted: Mar 2018; Alcohol: 14%;   Rating: 95 Points; James Halliday Wine Companion
