"Bright and fresh with signature Cabernet Sauvignon characteristics of red capsicum, menthol, violet and mixed herbs. Full bodied and mouth filling with juicy red cherry, blackcurrant and cassis, intertwined with savoury dark chocolate and tobacco. The Amarone component adds to a textured finish with great length and savoury tannins."
"20% of the grapes were left on 10kg drying racks for 5 weeks and 2 days, in the traditional Amarone manner, to concentrate flavour. The fruit for Jester was fermented on skins for 6 days, at cool and warm temperatures, to enhance pure berry fruit. The wine was then pressed and underwent partial barrel fermentation. Natural malolactic fermentation occurred before the wine was racked. 14.5% alc."
"92 pts ... The finest Jester Cabernet I can remember, this full-bodied yet supple wine features aromas of cassis, cedar and vanilla in fine balance. Cassis and chocolate flavors continue in the same vein, followed by a silky, long finish. Drink now–2028."
