Coopers Creek Reserve Gimblett Gravels Hawke's Bay Cabernet Sauvignon (2016)

Still youthful, the 2016 vintage (5*) is a dark, purple-flushed red, maturing very gracefully. A single-vineyard wine, it has a dense, structured palate. Full-bodied and highly concentrated, with cassis, plum and spice flavours, oak complexity, and a well-structured finish, it should be at its best 2022+.
