2016 Kamal Cabernet Sauvignon
Complexity, nuance, and grace. The Sextant Kamal has become a cherished gem – dependable and approachable, so generous with fruit and so elegant in texture. There’s roasted coffee, savory cinnamon, and rose petals on the fragrant nose. Assertive cherries and raspberries at the leading edge present initial impressions, then red currants and dark plums idle pleasantly on the mid-palate. A kind of paradox sets in: while an ensemble as opulent as ever, the blend also brings a lovely earthiness integrated by pliable tannins and enticing acidity. The alluring finish appeals to the senses, a lengthy and charming refrain of the profile.
