Oliver's Taranga Small Batch Cabernet Sauvignon 2009
The wine is brooding and pungent at this stage with aromas of blackcurrant essence and tomato leaf mixed with Asian spice, crushed flowers and regional licorice. The flavour swirl in my mouth, running rings around my senses and while there is depth of flavour the wine never gets big or bold. Its more elegant and regional than anything else. With the flavours still in my mind, the the ribald style tannins take hold, loving my taste buds, in a carefree sort of way. Stick this away for a while at it will reward you with gold.
Drink: 2016 - 2025
