From veteran winemaker John Glaetzer, this Cabernet from Langhorne Creek is something of a throwback, spending some 28 months in American oak hogsheads. Yet there’s clearly enough cherry and cassis fruit to support all of the vanilla and toasted coconut, and the wine finishes long and balanced. Drink 2010–2020.
Winemaker John Glaetzer’s wines have nothing shy about them. This Shiraz—largely sourced from Langhorne Creek—fits the mold, bursting with thick, concentrated blackberry and plum fruit and obvious lashings of new oak. It’s still a bit tannic and chewy on the long finish; try 2010–2020.
