Robert Oatley Signature Cabernet Sauvignon 2010
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.
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.
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.
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.
