Winemaker Notes :

Taut in texture, fine tannin with a savoury  profile. Cranberry represents the red fruit spectrum, with lingering flavours of yellow  plum, bay leaf and sage. Root vegetable earthiness is evident on the finish. Structurally framed by beautifully integrated French and American oak, present but rarely mentioned.

Purple berries and blackcurrants. There’s attractive freshness with licorice, some leafy nuances and roasting herbs. Really nice and fleshy uptake on entry. Full at the middle with gently creeping tannins with handy grip, which release plenty of flavor at the finish. Drink now or hold.

Leading off the new red releases, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Max’s is another wine that was packaged in a red plastic covering that makes opening bottles difficult. It has a great nose of ripe blackcurrants, plums, eucalyptus, and Asian spices. Medium to full-bodied, rounded, nicely textured, and with loads of charm on the palate, it’s already hard to resist and should be enjoyed over the coming 4-6 years.
