Winemaker Notes

Very deep crimson in color. Exhibiting sweet, lifted, spicy aromas of cassis, anise and violets; complex with hints of cedar and tar. The palate is lush, fleshy and layered with sweet fruit; concentrated and complex with good length.

Critical Acclaim

JH 95
Australian Wine Companion

High quality wine; blackcurrant and cassis fruit leads both bouquet and palate; fine tannins and cedary oak add layers to the mouthfeel.

RP 95
The Wine Advocate

The 2005 Cyril Henschke Cabernet Sauvignon contains 13% Merlot. It was sourced from the namesake vineyard with vines ranging in age from 23-49 years. It was aged for 21 months in 73% new French oak. A saturated purple color, the aromatics reveal lots of spice, cigar box, black currants and blackberry. Round, ripe, and extracted on the palate, this lush, flavorful Cabernet will continue to unwind for several more years and offers a drinking window extending from 2013 to 2025.

W&S 94
Wine & Spirits

Sleek and plump when first poured, this wine requires some patience to reveal the beautiful fresh currant flavors behind its oak scents and fruit tannins. It evolves from scents of toffee and expresso, past the long, chewy tannins into that luscious fruit. The finish is as dark and cool as an earthen cellar. Grown at Cyril Henschke Vineyard on vines ranging from 23 to 49 years of age, this will age well for a decade or more.

ST 93
International Wine Cellar

Bright ruby-red. Sexy redcurrant preserve, cherry-cola, anise and rose scents are complicated by notes of dried herbs and cedar. Round, smoky and sweet, offering finely etched red and dark berry flavors and a firming note of cherry skin. Supple tannins frame the fruit and extend through the long, juicy and subtly spicy finish, which features a sexy floral pastille quality. This is showing impressive complexity right now and there'd be no harm in drinking it sooner rather than later.
