Bouquet explodes with black currant, smoked hickory, glazed currents, aniseed, tar with a touch or cloves and cut mint. The palate starts out with drive and a thick sway of primary and robust fruits, this does make you guess and it’s all laid out with a beautiful clean exposure of strong fruits across the mouth.
The tannins are well integrated and offer a nice dry twist to the late palate.
"Often overlooked in the Two Hands lineup because it's McLaren Vale Cabernet, the 2019 Sexy Beast Cabernet Sauvignon is a solid example of the variety at a realistic price. Hints of tea-like herbals and floral notes accent cassis on the nose, while the medium-bodied palate is crisp, linear and streamlined, coming to a long, focused finish framed by dusty tannins. Drink 2020 - 2026.
