2016 TOM CULLITY Cabernet Sauvignon Malbec | Judges' Selection Award Country - Australia Red
"A vivid and complex interplay of black fruits, crushed herbs, star anise and violets. Full bodied and foursquare, structured around firm tannins with a lengthy, impressive finish." TEXSOM Retreat Mentor Editor, Sarah Jane Evans MW
"From Margaret River’s founding estate, the 2016 Tom Cullity is one of those wines that makes you say “Damn, that’s good!” Sourced from the original vines planted by Dr. Cullity, this blend of Cabernet (78%) and Malbec (20%) with a dash of Petit Verdot (2%) is deeply perfumed with ripe wild berries, violets, bay leaf, and fine cedar. The palate is supremely elegant – powerful without being weighty, with lush fruit balanced by fine ripe tannins and superbly integrated oak. The finish is exceptionally long with a saline note. A wine that is gorgeous at the moment and will only get better with time. Buy a case, enjoy some now, and then savor the evolution." TEXSOM Retreat Writer, Kaysie Rogers
