The 2017 Labyrinth Cabernet Sauvignon begins with classic notes with an herbal edge, coffee notes and dark, dusty fruit aromas in the glass. Medium to full-bodied, the palate has chewy, grainy tannins, while the dark fruit plays with the coffee notes across the mid-palate. The finish is still tight and grippy, so be patient with this one and give it some time in the bottle.
The Labyrinth Cabernet Sauvignon 2017 vintage is a classic expression of Cabernet Sauvignon with a fine balance between power and elegance. The wine displays a dense opaque colour. A beautiful expression of bramble berry and blackcurrant infused with violets, graphite and fynbos. Velvet smooth tannins coat the palate with perfectly judged use of wood that respects the fruit.
Soft and perfectly drinkable now but should benefit from further ageing over the next 6 to 8 years.
