Henschke Cyril Henschke Cabernet Sauvignon/Cabernet Franc/Merlot 2012

750 mL bottle  |   VINTAGES#:  426395
$215.00

79% cabernet sauvignon, 15% cabernet franc, 7% merlot, vinified separately, matured in French hogsheads (38% new) for 18 months. This is one of Australia's greatest cabernets, staring down Coonawarra and Margaret River (just for starters). The argument evaporates when you admit - as you must - that those wines are in such different styles it's an apples and oranges comparison. The real comparison is between this and Mount Mary. It has a purity and elegance that puts it in a class of its own. Drink By: 2039. Score - 97. (James Halliday, winecompanion.com.au, Oct. 6, 2016)
