    Winemaker's Notes:

    Deep, ruby red. Intense aromas of blackcurrant and licorice are overlaid with nutty, spicy oak. The palate is soft and subtle with mouth-filling licorice and raspberry flavors. Rich berries enhance the mid palate and smooth tannins continue through to a long and lasting finish.

    Critical Acclaim:

    As with the Shiraz Viognier, the 2008 Book Ends Cabernet Sauvignon proved a little finer than its 2007 vintage. Very deep garnet-purple in color, it is youthfully mute at this stage with moderately intense aromas of crushed blackberry, blueberry, dark chocolate, pencil shavings and cloves. Crisp with a medium level of very fine tannins, it is both concentrated and elegant in the mouth with plenty of fruit and a very long finish. Give it another year or two in bottle and consider drinking it 2012 to 2020.

    I was disappointed this wine did not come with a cork. After all you have only one chance to make a first impression. I realize now, I don't really care for Australian wines, corked or uncorked. This was just a so-so wine. I wouldn't purchase it again.
