Snake & Hering Dirty Boots Cabernet Sauvignon 2014
88% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Merlot, 4% Petit Verdot
Yallingup, Wilyabrup and Karridale, Margaret River, WA
Four blocks of Cabernet Sauvignon were selected for this blend: two from Yallingup and two from Wilyabrup and two blocks from the deep dark south of Karridale. The Yallingup Cabernet Sauvignon vineyards have provided the earthy, chocolate, blackberry notes with fleshy texture; the Wilyabrup components contribute ripe blackcurrant and violet aromatics with dense and rich filigreed long tannins. This is the first Dirty Boots with significant Karridale Cabernet Sauvignon, which is an indication of how long the ripening season was in 2013. Together, they make 2013 Dirty Boots a balanced, approachable and classy Cabernet Sauvignon with well integrated cedary oak.
