2016 Hickinbotham 'Trueman' Cabernet Sauvignon McClaren Vale

$64.95
JS95

Made by rockstar American winemaker and Napa Valley legend, Chris Carpenter, this Cabernet Sauvignon beams with vitality and richness. James Suckling notes “A fresh and fragrant cabernet with violets and dark rose-like floras, cassis and blueberries. There is also a decent serving of spicy oak in the mix. The palate is smoothly arranged on sheets of formidably strong tannins, which are carried seamlessly into the finish. A stunning cabernet.” Veteran wine critic James Halliday has praised this wine as some of the best Cabernet made in Australia. To us, it is a hypothetical blend of Cabernet from two hemispheres: Australian richness and decadence with the structure and depth of a Napa Valley cult Cab. At $65, it doesn’t get any better for what is delivered in this bottle!
