d'Arenberg The High Trellis Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

This is a good release of d'Arenberg's The High Trellis Cabernet Sauvignon. From cabernet sauvignon grown in McLaren Vale and the 2015 vintage, it has a deep colour in the glass, with aromas of jammy black fruits, earth and leaf. The oak influence is judicious, with only old oak used. The palate is towards medium-full bodied and the length good. This wine punches well above its weight at only $18, and indeed, bears a good resemblance to its elder sibling, the Coppermine Road cabernet sauvignon just reviewed. Terrific value. Rating: Good. Abv: 14.5%. Price: $18. Source: Sample.
