This wine forms part of Clarendon Hills' Premier Cru classification.
Deep and meaty in its expression – a fleshy and red cedar-like undertone lines the typically velvety texture. Lifted and fresh, this cuvee requires a minimum of 5 years before it starts to soften fully and develop a candid exuberance that defines a dark fruit bias with cabernet lift.
"The 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon Sandown Vineyard is sourced from 75-year-old vines. Opaque purple-colored, it is super-fragrant with an enticing bouquet of smoky oak, scorched earth, tar, black currant, and blackberry. Opulent on the palate, it has gobs of fruit as well as enough structure to evolve for a decade. It should have a 25 year lifespan and a lengthy drinking window. "
The Wine Advocate
"In some ways this is the most classically built 2005 Clarendon Hills Cabernet. There’s a hint of greeness to the aromas and flavors that are not found in the other offerings, which may make it more or less appealing, depending on your tastes. Mint, cassis and vanilla mingle easily on the palate, which is lush and creamy but shows hints of Cabernet austerity at the same time. Drink now–2020. "
"Inky ruby. Pungent red and dark berry preserve aromas are complicated by licorice, leather, vanilla and roasted coffee. Deeply concentrated, powerful and deep, offering sweet kirsch and plum flavors and harmonious tannins. A remarkably rich, outsized wine with amazing clinging texture and more oomph than the 2004. What to serve with this?"
