2016 Huntington Estate Cabernet Sauvignon Special Reserve
2016 was one of those vintages where everything fell into place – the weather, the timing, the yields and the flavours all hit the sweet spot.
The Huntington Estate Special Reserve is the wine that consistently embodies and defines the Huntington style and philosophy. It’s supremely age worthy, varietal and expressive of the terroir, displaying exceptional tannins and palate while offering extraordinarily good value.
A rich, complex, and intense but balanced wine with beautiful texture and tannins. Primary fruit characters lead the way with black and red fruits including blackberries, red currants, red plums, and hint of a floral note. An attractive savoury, umami character with some dried herbs supports the fruit. Mouth covering and filling, very smooth and silky tannins. Lovely mid palate and a lingering finish.
