2020 Sexy Beast Cabernet Sauvignon
Sexy Beast, a succulent and luscious McLaren Vale Cabernet Sauvignon
I was always taught that Cabernet Sauvignon was a classical, structured and well mannered wine, but in our wonderful McLaren Vale Mediterranean climate we make it rich, brooding and powerful, underpinned by boundless energy. We call it our Sexy Beast, inspired by the cult classic movie starring Sir Ben Kingsley
Tasting notes written by Two Hands Wines Proprietor Michael Twelftree.
Deep purple to black hue
The bouquet springs forward with high tone notes of cedar, black current, sarsaparilla, fresh liquorice, cloves, aniseed and smoked meats
“The palate is medium weight in texture, this wine starts out with a nice core of dark berry fruits that draw late into the palate. When the tannins take over they are broad in appeal, with loads of cassis and black fruit flavours. This is a wine that offers immediate pleasure and will reward 8+ years in a good cellar. In all the key here is that you have a Cabernet Sauvignon that offers immediate drinking pleasure and it does slide down all a little too easy” – MT
