Casa Freschi Profondo 2013

“55/24/21% cabernet sauvignon, shiraz and malbec, wild yeast open-fermented, pressed direct to barrel and matured for 21 months in French barriques (5% new). Has the soft, plushy fruit typical of Langhorne Creek, and is very complex, the apparent impact of oak inexplicable (unless a high percentage of 1yo). All of that said, there’s plenty to enjoy.”  94pts, 14.0%alc, Drink by 2030, $55, James Halliday 2 August 2016
