The 2009 Coonawarra Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon is a deep crimson red with purple hues. Fresh blackcurrant and dark berry fruit aromas are apparent on the nose exuding typical Coonawarra characteristics. Hints of black olive and licorice are balanced with nuances of cedar and vanilla from fine grain French oak. The palate exudes generous ripe cassis flavours with tobacco leaf, supported by subtle integration of oak leading to a rich, smooth finish.
An ideal accompaniment to osso bucco, beef rib roast or mature cheeses.
The bouquet offers blackcurrant and mint aromas, both true to region; the medium-bodied but firm palate has an appealing touch of earthy austerity to frame the cassis and blackcurrant at its core. Will cruise through a decade; needs another three years for openers.
