Winemaker’s Tasting Note
“One of the most significant qualities of Cabernet Sauvignon is its ability to age well, and the Gravel Quarry 2012 is showing its potential. Distinct aromas of black cherry and cedar, with notes of pine needles, hints of cinnamon and subtle oak. A full bodied wine, with well-aged and firm tannins, sensitively balanced. Concentrated, dried currants fill a plush mid-palate, adding to the extended length of this prestigious wine.” Johnnie Calitz
