Brash Higgins CBSV 2015
The Wine Front – Fruit grown on the family estate, Omensetter Vineyard, then matured for 15 months in French oak. Quite classic, but with the BH lift and freshness. No additions in winemaking, natural ferment. Lots going on in the bouquet with blueberry, currants, liquorice, salt bush and dark chocolate. Juiciness here, warm mulberry, a sheath of fine tannins, crisp acidity, lots of lingering fruit and spice flavour, so vibrant, plenty of the DNA of cabernet but in a more jolly way, but not without tannin and architecture. Bigger boned, compelling stuff.
