d'Arenberg The High Trellis Cabernet Sauvignon 2012


SKU 08158


The nose is fresh and lifted, full of plums and blackcurrants mixing with minty notes and fragrant violets. The oak supplies a touch of cedar, adding complexity, combined with the typical soulful earthiness of d'Arenberg reds. The palate is textured and lithe, coated by lacy tannins with a core of cassis, licorice and plum fruit mixed with earth, graphite and a mineral tail. It's well weighted, fresh and balanced, inviting now or will reward the patient. Like all d'Arenberg wines, decanting will help this wine show its best. It will age gracefully for up to ten years if cellared carefully.

Wine AdvocateDeep garnet/purple, the 2012 The High Trellis Cabernet Sauvignon has aromas of intense cassis, blackberries and black plums with hints of dried herb, menthol and chocolate box hints. Medium to full-bodied with rich and ripe flavors, it has chewy tannins and a long finish.
