Notes from the Winemaker:
This is the most homogenised, smoothly-assimilated Cabernet in recent years from Hickinbotham, reminiscent of those made by Stephen Hickinbotham in the early ‘eighties. While its aromas of bergamot and blueberry have yet to lock in and settle, the palate’s already there: fine, fresh and strapping. It’s an elegant, savoury wine now, but will smooth out and flesh up to memorable opulence with a decade or two in the cellar.

Ratings & Reviews

92+ Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
"Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2015 Trueman Cabernet Sauvignon is redolent of crushed blackcurrants, black plums and dried Mediterranean herbs with hints of cedar, toast, fertile earth and mocha. Medium to full-bodied, it fills the mouth with expressive cassis and toasty flavors, lifted with a pleasant herbal note and framed by ripe, grainy tannins, finishing long and lively." - Lisa Perrotti-Brown (31st Aug 2017)

92 Points - Wine Spectator Magazine:
"Bold and savory, with hints of smoke and teriyaki to the concentrated cassis and blackberry flavors. Gains momentum on the finish, with Earl Grey tea and sandalwood accents. Spice and licorice details linger amid the dense tannins. Drink now through 2028. 1,300 cases made." – MW (Jun 15, 2018)
