We oenophiles love our fruit, but when we get a taste of true terroir layered subtly between fruit, oak and tannin, we go bananas. So pony up and grab a glass of this insanely delicious, beautifully crafted Cabernet from rock star winemaking team, Ernest Storm and Paul Lato. With unctuous layers of graphite, cassis, fresh black berry and pipe tobacco, this is a Cabernet that gives more with every sip. Bold, structured and absolutely delicious, we promise you it’s not crazy to make this your go-to barbecue wine when impressing guests.

Coming from a selection in the estate vineyard, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Cliff Hanger is another 100% Cabernet release and spent 20 months in 65% new French oak. It offers a touch more density and depth as well as brilliant crème de cassis, green tobacco, lead pencil, and plenty of toasted spice. As with the Estate release, it's rich, medium to full-bodied, has plenty of structure and depth, and a great finish. Drink bottles any time over the coming 10-15 years.
