DEN HOED Cabernet Sauvignon 'Andreas' 2013

The 2013 'Andreas' Cabernet Sauvignon is one of the best examples of this wine that I have tasted. The Cabernet opens with a bouquet of boysenberry preserves, cassis and black cherries laced with anise and sagebrush accents. The palate is dense and massive, having an intense core of black fruits reminiscent of cassis, candied black cherry, and blackberry pie with cigar box and mocha accents. The richness and polish to this wine is evident. With silky tannins and a voluptuous mouthfeel, this stunner will drink at least another 15 years. Overall this is an excellent effort from winemaker Giles Nicault. (Best 2017-2033) - March, 2017 (OB)
