Medium garnet-purple colored, the 2013 Earthworks Cabernet Sauvignon is intensely scented of blackcurrants, eucalyptus and chocolate box with hints of cloves and marmite toast. Medium to full-bodied with plenty of freshness injected into the full-throttle fruit, the fine grainy tannins lend texture and interest to the medium to long finish.
Bright violet color. Red berries and cherry pit on the nose, with a hint of peppery spices and a floral element adding nuance. Silky and gently sweet in the mouth, displaying good energy to its redcurrant and bitter cherry flavors. Supple tannins build on the pliant finish, which leaves spice and smoke notes behind.
