2020 Cabernet SauvignonRed Wine
This wine is another first for us here at Maverick Estate Winery. The Cabernet Sauvignon fruit from the 2020 vintage is spectacular. The wine has a deep dark colour with classic aromas of cassis, hints of mint and a whiff of violets. Full-bodied and rich dark fruit flavours including black cherry, and black currant burst into your mouth. This wine has many levels of sweet fruit, oak, black licorice, and a hint of spice. The medium tannins give this wine a lingering finish.
“92 points – This wine, Maverick’s first Cabernet Sauvignon, was fermented in open-top fermenters with natural yeast. It was aged 18 months in French and Hungarian oak barrels and bottled unfiltered. It is an elegant wine beginning with aromas of cassis and dark berries. On the palate, there are flavours of black cherry, black currant, blueberry, mocha and spice. The finish persists” – John Schreiner on Wine
