MIKE PRESS 2016 CABERNET SAUVIGNON
Tyson Stelzer - Oct 2018
Mike Press Adelaide Hills Single Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2016
This is a commanding cabernet even by Mike Press standards, a wine that consummately juxtaposes power and presence with precision and definition. Violet aromas and crunchy blackcurrants, capsicum and tobacco leaf flavours are exactingly varietal in their precision, coasting long and full with a core of deep, black presence. The tangy acidity of this cool site keep it bright and refreshing, while firm, fine tannins promise a long future.
