95 Points for Erin Eyes 2016 ‘Ballycapple’ Cabernet Sauvignon

Ballycapple_95_PointsThe 2019 James Halliday Wine Companion had reviewed Steve Wiblin’s Erin Eyes 2016 ‘Ballycapple’ Cabernet Sauvignon and awarded it with Gold at 95 Points.

Here is what the review says:

35yo vines, matured for 20 months in French oak. Excellent deep crimson-purple hue; the bouquet suggests what the palate confirms. This is the best Steve Wiblin Cabernet Sauvignon made to date in a region that does little more than tolerate cabernet. It is rich in blackcurrant/cassis, with tannins assisting rather than quarrelling with the fruit, oak a finishing touch.
