Ringbolt Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

Ringbolt Cabernet Sauvignon 2016 90 pts Wine Spectator & 90 pts Wine Enthusiast

Tasting Notes

3/1/19
This has an engaging aromatic lift that has some enticing oak spice, adding some mocha and chocolate notes along with dried herbs to the dark currant and dark plum notes on the nose. Medium fuller to fuller bodied, the darker fruit notes transfer over into the palate with herbal and earth notes all in balance, while the tannins have just the right amount of tension and grip on the back end suggesting that this should age nicely. Just now starting to open up this is a delicious drop that should bring a lot of drinking pleasure over the next five to eight years.

Awards, Reviews and other Notes

90 pts Wine Spectator 6/30/18
Juicy blackberry and plum flavors are vibrant up front, with Earl Grey tea, cedar, rosemary and licorice notes that are stretched tight across a firm frame. The tannins provide some appealing traction on the finish. Drink now through 2028.
90 pts Wine Enthusiast August 2018
Rich but with a little more restraint than the previous vintage, this wine offers up comforting aromas of chocolate tart, red and black currants and dried eucalyptus leaves, backed by a warm stone and earthy spine. It's full bodied with grainy tannins and a stony graphite finish.



Winemaker Notes

Dark crimson in color, this Ringbolt opens with classical Margaret River Cabernet Sauvignon fresh varietal notes of bright berry fruits, briar and sea spray, followed with enticing wafts of chocolate and mocha, finishing with subtle spiced oak aromas.The meduim to full-bodied palate shows cherry and satsuma plum characters leading to a fruit-sweet mid palate of chocolate and mocha, finishing with defined tannins.
