The 2005 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon captures the distinctive fruit characters of a powerful, yet elegant, Coonawarra Cabernet. The nose expresses a striking, dark berry richness with abundant notes of cherry, black currant, spice, and smoky oak. On the rich, muscular palate, layers of cassis, smoke and chocolate harmonize with supple tannin and acidity. This wine will gain further complexity with time in the bottle.
The 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve delivers aromas of pain grille, pencil lead, mineral, black currant, and blackberry jam. Full-flavored, savory, and plush on the palate, this impressive effort has enough stuffing to evolve for several more years. It will be at its best from 2011 to 2022.
Classic Coonawarra cabernet grown along the region's narrow strip of terra rossa soil, this wine has light behind its currant flavors, driving them with floral power. There's intensity rather than thickness to the tannins, a tight, impacted structure that will hold it for years. As it evolves, the cedar and mushroom scents will develop to complement rack of lamb.
A generous red, showing real transparency to the cherry, currant and delicate sage, white pepper and cream notes flitting through as the fruit lingers elegantly. A seamless wine that's built to last. Drink now through 2015.
Inky ruby. Spicy red berry and cherry aromas are complicated by smoky minerals, baking spices and cured tobacco. Primary red fruit flavors are pure and concentrated, with impressive mineral bite and silky tannins. A fresh, impressively delineated wine that finishes with outstanding persistence, leaving traces of cherry pit and sweet tobacco behind.
Full-bodied, with supple tannins and layers of dark fruits; has good line and length, but does show some heat from the 15% alcohol.
