The MacDonald brothers' 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon from their vineyard in the heart of To Kalon is an exceptional wine, and one of the best of the vintage. Endowed with a classical and highly refined tannic structure, after lengthy decanting the wine burst from the glass in a blaze of juicy cherry and blackberry, with nuances of black truffle, graphite and menthol. Firm at the core and nicely balanced at this early stage in its evolution, I expect this bottling to develop beautifully in the cellar.
