91 Points from James Suckling

Purple berries and blackcurrants. There’s attractive freshness with licorice, some leafy nuances and roasting herbs. Really nice and fleshy uptake on entry. Full at the middle with gently creeping tannins with handy grip, which release plenty of flavor at the finish.

Leading off the new red releases, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Max’s is another wine that was packaged in a red plastic covering that makes opening bottles difficult. It has a great nose of ripe blackcurrants, plums, eucalyptus, and Asian spices. Medium to full-bodied, rounded, nicely textured, and with loads of charm on the palate, it’s already hard to resist and should be enjoyed over the coming 4-6 years.

 

Winemaker Notes

Dark red with a magenta core, the Max's Cabernet Sauvignon has aromas of red currants, cranberry, and dried Italian herbs. Red, blue, and black fruits melded with sweet spiced cinnamon on the palate with a touch of vanilla chai and cedar oak. Fine, silky tannins add savory balance and length to the palate.
