Brash Higgins 2015 ‘CBSV’ Cabernet Sauvignon

CBSV_label

The fruit for the 2015 CBSV was hand selected at the Omensetter Vineyard. The ideal 2015 vintage yielded excellent, full flavoured and balanced fruit, but minute quantities, producing a very limited parcel of 160 cases

‘Perfumed nose; floral, sweet mint, blueberries and cassis, with spicy notes of crushed caraway seeds, Earl Grey tea, and Dutch liquorice. On the palate the wine is smooth and rich with the sweet earthiness of roasted root vegetables, the acidity of rhubarb and the dark lusciousness of black currants. Still, the tannins are layered, but approachable, finishing dry: pulling the tongue in then releasing it, keeping the wine feeling reserved and controlled.’ – Brad Hickey, Vinitor, November 2016.
