A doz comprising six superb Cabernets. All up $688 worth for just $260. The Kilikanoon and Massena together are worth more than the asking price of this pack. You’ll also be getting world class Mitolo Serpico, 96-point Curtis Cavaliere, exceptional Claymore Bittersweet and Monterra Cabernets, which on more than one occasion has been voted wine of the day in a lineup of more than 20 wines.
6 excellent Cabs at an everyday drinking price. The Vintage Car Cab and the Ferghana are both rich and varietal, with black fruits and a touch of cedar. The Finniss is soft and well oaked. The Red Deer is pristine Langhorne Cab, with great varietal purity – awesome now and will cellar beautifully. Mitolo’s Jester is on the bigger side for Cab and has tightly coiled black fruits and Cab aromatics. It is worth decanting. The biggest is the Curtis Cavaliere, with 96 points from Sam Kim, a powerhouse wine laden with tobacco, mint, violet and plum.
4 bottles apiece of 3 excellent Pinot Noir here. Lightest of these is the Riposte, a gold winning, red fruited and spiced released with plenty of svelte swirliness. The Kings Creed, made by Ben Riggs, is medium bodied, seductive, and finished with silky tannins. Goes very nicely with aniseed tea duck. The Heirloom Alcazar is also medium bodied, 50% whole bunch fermented and treated to 50% brand new French oak. It offers cherries, strawberries, herbs, and lavender. Serious fruit here, great length and a lovely texture.
6 world class Grenache here from Massena (off 160-year-old vines), Heirloom’s Alcala with 5 gold medals, Curtis Small Batch - currently Huon Hooke’s equal top McLaren Vale Grenache from the 2021 vintage, the Curtis Limited twin 96 point awarded monster and Hamilton Burtons, from vines planted in 1947. Grab a pack... we reckon you’ll love ‘em as much as we do.
