    Winemaker's Notes:

    A full-flavored yet finely structured Cabernet of great appeal: black berries, dried leaves and fine gravelly tannin, reflect an outstanding year.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Crimson-purple; a wine that exudes its class and character, with blackcurrant fruit leading the way on the bouquet and palate, and supported by ripe, rounded tannins plus quality French oak.

    A sculpted, refined expresion of Cabernet Sauvignon, Oatley's 2010 combines hints of mint and dark berries into a wine that offers clean, pure fruit, subtle oak shadings and a long, silky finish. Editors' Choice.

    Wine Enthusiast

    Saturated ruby. Pungent aromas of cherry pit, cassis and pipe tobacco, with a peppery overtone adding urgency. Smoky and penetrating on the palate, offering subtly sweet dark fruit flavors that show a youthfully chewy texture. Closes spicy and long, with slow-mounting sweetness and smooth, well-knit tannins adding shape.

    International Wine Cellar

    A pure, black currant scented Cabernet, this wine's plump fruit is restrained by tight, herbal spice. The texture lends a sense of refinement in its light feel. Pour it with flank steak.

    JF_Chicago (2/14/2013)
    Rating: 2.5 Stars This wine was underwhelming given the ratings and professional reviews I've read previously. For someone who likes bigger WA or CA cabs, this wine never seemed to open up to what I'd expected. May have to wait a few years to add more stars. Quote of the evening: ...you said one of reviewers mentioned 'best served with flank steak', did they also include 'as a marinade'?. Overall: not a bad value, but better options are available at a similar price point (e.g. Chateau Ste. Michelle Cold Creek Cabernet). Upside: will make a very good housewarming gift.

    I agree with other reviewers. Lots of tannin, vegetal tones, not fully developed. I will store the second bottle for another two years at least.

    Young and fruity. Will put the 2nd bottle in the cellar for a few years.

    I am enjoying it, served it to guests, who enjoyed it but I find it a little light for a cab.

    Thin but finishes fairly smooth. The 94 pt rating is undeserved. Its a definite hold and could improve with age. I give it an 87.

    Was a little disappointed with this wine. Not as full-bodied or with as much of a finish as American cabs, but quite drinkable.
