Part of the Premium Wines at the resort here in Mexico...hour decant and it is ready. Booming nose yet lacks a little on the finish. Drink now.

This is perhaps the best Aussie Cabernet Sauvignon I've encountered so far. Juicy, fresh, surprisingly elegant and refined, yet with great fruit and dito structure. This is already accessible, but will age longer than most people think.

Feel like this is the Bevan style wine of Australia. Nothing to be ashamed of here. In your face alcohol and tannins, and nothing is apologetic. The fruit is only there to provide a small balance. The rest of it is full throttle. Hold on to your wine glass!

Loads of menthol, dark berry medley, and mild baking spices. Delicious 🤭

A piece of South Australia’s wine growing heritage in a glass right here. The Hickenbotham family has been a driving force in South Australia’s viticultural community for decades now, and the fruit that comes from their vineyards has been used to make some of the most iconic red wines. Nestled in the McLaren Vale, their family estate vineyard is where this pinnacle of a Clarendon Cabernet Sauvignon, “Trueman”, hails from. Elegant, dainty, fruit-forward, and delicate...this wine is fantastic. Mint, espresso, leather, graphite, and plum. This is a wine that drinks wonderfully now, but will also bloom in the cellar marvelously.

Deep purple, beautiful perfume and brussel sprouts underneath. So good.

Big cab with big Chris Carpenter styling bold Aussie fruit with great American wine making,.. Trueman is a win and will be exceptional in years to come.
