Vinaceous Raconteur Cabernet Sauvignon 2014
The Raconteur typifies classic Margaret River cabernet; lush, rich and deep purple in colour with bright hues, the aroma leaps from the glass with violets and black berry and mocha notes. Not unlike a Rorschach Image, people will see different flavours across the palate; some will find ripe fleshy black currants and cassis, others will find crunchy sour cherries; but both complement the overall palate with intensity, weight, structure and texture.
Wine AdvocateSourced from the Wilyabrup subregion, the 2014 Raconteur Cabernet Sauvignon displays classic Margaret River Cabernet notions of sage and bay leaf layered over cherry and cassis. Hints of vanilla and cedar add complexity without dominating the wine, allowing the fruit to shine, and it's framed by supple tannins that persist through a long, silky finish.
Wine SpectatorCrisp, with a mint and bay leaf overlay to the chewy ripe cherry and blackberry flavors, finishing with a mouthful of spice. Drink now through 2026. 2,800 cases made.
