This wine delivers plenty of authoritative Cabernet flavor and structure at a reasonable tariff. Dark fruit flavors are accented by copious notes of vanilla, cedar and mint, and while the fruit is fully ripe, it remains firm throughout. Drink now–2020.
Clearly aimed at the U.S. market, the Raconteur is a soft, mouthfilling Cab imbued with chocolate and prune flavors that may strike some tasters as slightly overripe. Drink it over the next year or two.
