The 2016 The Menzies Cabernet Sauvignon is very good. A savory, complex, herbal and full throttle Cabernet, it has svelte elegance and tannic swagger in equal measure. This is very licorice-y in its expression, with salted raspberry, mulberry, aniseed and clove to close. Smart. It matured in a combination of French and Hungarian hogsheads for 22 months. The portion of Hungarian oak may help to explain some of the subtle, slightly offbeat spice characters through the finish. Sealed under natural cork.
