"The 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon from Addax is bright, focused and energetic, with all of the tension that is a signature of the year. There is good focus and persistence, but the 2017 is presently very tight. Maybe more time in bottle will help; we will see. There is plenty of potential, that much is obvious."
