For an inky hued New World wine, there's an awful lot of classic to the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Sexy Beast. Start with the nose of pencil shavings and cassis. Add a streamlined, medium to full-bodied palate that shows genuine Cabernet structure—firm acids and crisp edges. Yes, it's bold, flavorful and approachable young, but it also fits into Cabernet's varietal tradition.

From the McLaren Vale, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Sexy Beast lives up to its name. Currants, raspberries, spice, tobacco and a touch of marine-like seaweed character all literally soar from the glass. It's medium to full-bodied, nicely balanced, fresh and lively on the palate, with no sense of heaviness or weight. This is a delicious, well-made - sexy - beauty that should keep for 8-10 years.

Opens with a mouthful of wild blackberry, blueberry and dried cherry flavors, showing nice purity of fruit and supple tannins. A juicy accent lingers on the finish, with touches of orange zest, spice, black tea and pepper. Drink now through 2028. 9,000 cases made.
