Wines of Substance Cs Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

21.50

We so loved Charles Smith's Syrah's that wanted more of his wines, after first sip of this Cabernet Sauvignon we had to have it on our shelves!

The wine is rich, dark, unctuous, brooding and deep. Delicious, complex and compelling. Smooth, long and amazing. A wine of true substance. 

Artisanal approach to winemaking, traditional methods of natural fermentation, bottling unfiltered and unfined, twelve months ageing in 50% new oak barrels, which is not common on a larger scale and he manages perfectly. Incredible value for such quality and beauty.

P.S. Charles Smith produces Syrah's under K Vintners and Bordeaux varietals under Wines of Substance brand.

REVIEWS

92 Points, Jeb Dunnuck- Robert Parker - One of the best values I’ve tasted in a long time, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon from the team at K Vintners was hand-harvested, natively fermented and aged all in French oak. Smoking good notes of cassis, black currants and hints of plum all emerge from this rich, beautifully textured, layered beauty that has solid tannic grip, a silky, elegant texture and a great finish. It has real elegance and finesse and is a dark fruited, unctuous beauty to drink over the coming 3-4 years.

Stephen Tenzer - "This powerful Cabernet is a seriously good value"

Wine & Spirits Magazine - "One of the Best New Wineries of the Last Ten Years"
