    Winemaker's Notes:

    The wine has a deep garnet color. Intense varietal Cabernet Sauvignon aromas of blackberry, blackcurrant, plum and licorice lift from the glass to greet the nose and is underpinned by the beautifully integrated French oak aromas. The palate is intense, linear and elegant. Blackcurrant and licorice flavors linger in the mouth to produce an incredibly long finish. The fine backbone of acidity displayed by this wine and the ultra fine tannins suggest a vintage of Art Series Cabernet Sauvignon with great aging potential.

    Critical Acclaim:

    A super-elegant and refined wine, with few of the flourishes that many of its regional counterparts exhibit; the fragrant, dark fruits of the bouquet are precisely replayed on the palate with its somber flavors and tannins.

    Polished, ripe and open-textured, offering a generous mouthful of dark chocolate-scented blackberry and cherry flavors, standing upright and refined as the finish lingers.

    The 2005 Art Series Cabernet Sauvignon has a deep garnet color with a slight tinge of purple. Scented of black currant, tree bark, spice box, loam and just a whiff of capsicum, the medium bodied palate is fine and elegant with a good backbone of high acidity and medium level tannins providing good structure and balance. It has a long finish. Drink it now to 2019+.
