The simple truth, this is our best Cabernet. MVPs are identified in youth and carefully nurtured. They show early promise and are given intense, individual tuition and the best environment to show their brilliance.
With 10% whole bunch, this was native fermented with extended skin contact and spent 6 months in new French oak before being racked to older barrels. It remains in wood for around 2 years prior to bottling. Graphite, iron, tobacco, worn cherry, ripe sweet strawberries flood a muscular palate, buoyant with acidity and seasoned with fine spice. Tannins are sinewy, but well absorbed by the dense fruit, taking this to a warming cinnamon and mint finish. Ideal with rare beef and / or roasted root veg.
