2012 Materra Cabernet Sauvignon Hidden Block
On the nose black cherries, currants, blackberries, plums and raspberries. Other flavors follow with hints of coffee, chocolate, cocoa, white pepper and vanilla. On the palate the wine is crisp, with mouth-watering acidity. The soft tannins add a nice velvet texture moving from front to back. Dark fruits are abundant, chocolate covered cherries, caramelized figs, and cedar box. This wine is young and can age for some time if you want to cellar it. Prime drinking should be from 2016 to 2025 and beyond. If you choose to open this wine up earlier we would recommend decanting the wine for 20 minutes and enjoying with friends and family.
80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 16% Merlot, 2% Petit Verdot, 1% Cabernet Franc, 1% Malbec
