Medhurst Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

Have a vertical of Medhurst Cabernet to taste – 2003, 2006, 2010, 2012, 2013, 2014 – but we live in the present, not the past, so I’ll start here, and work my way backwards. Actually, as a postscript, I just ran through them all. Savoury wines, by and large, with a distinct iodine and black olive character riding through most of the vintages. 2014 is perhaps a little tough, 2013 has a rugged ‘back away from me slowly now’ appeal, with 2012 and 2010 having good tannin and depth, 2006 and 2003 developing surely, albeit in a truffle and black fruit style. I can confidently say, well I think I can, that the 2015 is the best yet. Vines planted in 2000, in the sub-region of Gruyere.
