2014 K Cabernet Shiraz by Thompson
Medium red with a purple edge.
Red cherry, dark plums and a spicy edge lift from the glass. Delicate aromas of violets and white pepper together with subtle smoky/savoury notes add further layers of complexity.
Delicate red berry fruits fill the palate while ripe, elegant yet firm tannins add structure and texture. Red cherry flavors linger in the mouth giving length and purity while the spicy / savoury notes from the oak display finesse.
