MATTHEWS Cabernet Sauvignon 'Reserve' 2013

The 2013 Matthews ‘Reserve’ is a blend of 68% Cabernet with Merlot and Cabernet Franc. This has intoxicating aromatics of black tea, tar, milk chocolate and crushed mint. The texture is stunning. This leads to profound flavors of black tea, black cherry, blackberry jam and suggestions of Turkish coffee with sweet pipe tobacco accents. This needs a one to two hour decant if enjoying young. This powerful Cabernet will cellar beautifully for decades but it is nearly impossible to resist at this early stage. (Best 2017-2033) - July, 2017 (OB)
