2018 Huntington Estate Shiraz Cabernet Sauvignon

I’m pretty sure I have mentioned before that these two varieties make for the perfect couple.  They just seem to get on so well together.  I know they are not exclusive because both have engaged in ensembles with other varieties separately and together and, thankfully, will continue to do so.  I’m happy with that because I know Shiraz and Cabernet will always come back together in the form of quality wines like this one from Huntington Estate.

A lovely deep purple/red colour shines in the glass as aromas of plums and blackberries seep into the atmosphere.  It reeks of youthfulness and freshness and it’s no different on the palate.  Heaps of dark fruit characters coat the palate and some herbs and hint of pepper complement the fruit.  There’s a top quality fine, dark chocolate like smoothness to it as well that I can’t describe better than that. It works beautifully with the abundant fruit characters.  This is a lovely wine, it really is, and for the price, incredible value.
