"The classically styled 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Sexy Beast features hints of mint and cocoa on the nose, alongside cassis and baking spices. It's medium to full-bodied, with a certain amount of varietal reserve, meaning it doesn't completely fill the mouth or coat the palate like Shiraz but shows a crisp, linear and well-defined finish."

"From the cooler McLaren Vale (when compared to the Barossa), the 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Sexy Beast sports a saturated purple color as well as a beautiful perfume of blue fruits, menthol, incense, and spring flowers. It's juicy, medium-bodied, and elegant on the palate, with a fresh, focused texture. It's a sexy little wine to drink over the coming 4-5 years."
