The Abercrombie is Howard Park's finest Cabernet Sauvignon.  A dark ruby red with purple hues and a translucent edge, all of which imply youth, intensity and promise.  The bouquet is dense in dark berry fruits with hints of sweet, talcy and spicy French oak.  Rich in classic Cabernet notes of sweet blackberry and blackcurrant, savoury dried herbs and softening cocoa and mocha, the palate’s opulence is shaped by a supple and fine tannin structure.

The 2012 is an outstanding vintage of Abercrombie that will take time to reach maturity and will cellar well for more than a decade.  This wine will drink at its best from 2017.
