2014 Akubra

2014 Akubra

This is the iron fist in a velvet glove, our Akubra, combines 53% Syrah with 47% Cabernet Sauvignon.
The aromas suggest elegance with great depth and complexity and the palate brings power, structure,
and a more brooding demeanor. This wine is beautifully layered with notes of dark cherry, violet,
sassafras, cured black olive, and a mélange of berries, hints of cedar and dark chocolate shavings. The
palate shows the Syrah up front, soft and approachable with chalky tannins, and the Cabernet Sauvignon
brings the structure and backbone.
