Sons of Eden Eurus Cabernet Sauvignon 2018
Hand picked from 27yo vines in Keyneton. Wild fermented; matured 20 months in French oak hogsheads. Density and definition. Impressive concentration of blackcurrant and blackberry fruit, even fresh licorice and touches of menthol, all backed with high-cocoa dark chocolate French oak. Firm, finely, confident tannins direct a long finish. Full and impacting.
Rating: 94 Points
