Description

While the legendary Cullen Diana Madeline Cabernet sells out in seconds, we're very fortunate to be able to enjoy a Cabernet blend of nearly the same quality for less than half the price. Made 100% demeter certified biodynamic and matured in oak barrels for 17 months, this new release will improve and drink beautifully over the next decade from vintage, perhaps longer. The 2016 blend is 84% Cabernet and 16% Merlot.

Smells

A dead ringer for Cru Classe Bordeaux, but with a little more generosity of dark fruit and mint on the nose, there's cedar, cassis, tobacco and deep, dark blackberry and plum, with attractive autumn leafy notes.

Tastes

Amazingly elegant and medium-bodied, this is for lovers of the real Bordeaux so rarely seen these days. Weighing in at 13% alcohol, this is super-fine, super-expressive and super buying. Drink now to 2027.
