Henschke Abbott's Prayer 2018
A blend of 57% Merlot and 43% Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2018 Abbott's Prayer reflects the outstanding vintage, offering a luscious blend of mocha, black cherries, cassis, tobacco and vanilla on the nose, which seems to lack the green notes that marked previous vintages. Medium to full-bodied, it balances the round, mid-palate generosity of the Merlot with the length and tannic structure of the Cabernet, finishing long and dusty. While approachable now, it should be better in five years and will probably peak around five years after that.
