Our Cabernet Sauvignons from 2007 are remarkably fruit-forward and generous in their youth, yet remain true to the house style, with refinement, elegance and long cellaring potential. The 2007 CASK 23 offers continuously unfolding aromas of violets, cassis, whole and crushed blackberries, oak spice, dark cocoa, cedar and subtle cigar box. It's intense, yet still vibrant and fresh, with concentrated flavors which build through the finish and linger after each sip. Silky texture and refined tannins complete the portrait. Serve CASK 23 with braised beef cheeks or crown roast of lamb.
"The flagship wine, the 2007 Cask 23 Estate is primarily Cabernet Sauvignon and production is usually between 1,500-1,600 cases. Displaying finesse, power and measured restraint, this deep dark plum/purple-tinged 2007 reveals notes of black currants, Asian spices, sweet plums, Christmas fruitcake and cedar. This medium to full-bodied, delicate but substantial beauty should be consumed over the next 12-15 years."
