THE HIGH ROAD DIRECTORS RESERVE 2012
A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Petit Verdot with a deep dark ruby almost inky black centre, a brilliant, bright red edge.
“This wine is floral, intense violets and shows the extended new wood aging. The impact of the new French oak wood is balanced and rich with a gentle release of vanilla and cedar spiciness almost a slight pepper and cinnamon. The potential of the wine is clear but will need time for the intense cassis and blueberry fruit to come forward. This wine is complex and layered with fruit, wood and dark chocolate nuances.”
“The palate is complex and layered with rich ripe tannins both from the fruit and wood. The cassis and blueberry fruits are full on the front of the palate adding length to the mid palate. The follow on after the fruit is the spiciness that carries the dry ripe tannins of the fruit and the vanilla from the wood tannins. The palate is still tight but when open for a while the fruit is rich and dark, cassis and blue/blackberry in its intense sweetness. This wine is very complex. This wine will improve with the correct cellaring to achieve a wonderful drinking experience.”
