Winemaker's Notes

Suberb Cabernet - just starting to drink beautifully! An amazing value - well deserving of the 90+ ratings its received from almost every major wine publication (93 W&S, 90+ WA, 91+ ST, 90 WE). Limited.

"...Aromas and flavors of menthol, saddle leather, spice box, and red as well as black currants are offered in a full-bodied, concentrated intense style. Made from 100% Cabernet Sauvignon and aged 22 months in French Oak, it will drink well for 10-12 years."
90+ Points
-Wine Advocate

"($45) Saturated, bright ruby-red. Very primary aromas of black cherry, raw berries and licorice; slightly medicinal in a positive way. Concentrated, intense and penetrating; extremely youthful, especially considering the fact that it's already five years old. Possesses a tight core of sappy, spicy fruit complicated by a note of fresh herbs. Finishes with a powerful tannic spine but avoids hardness. This should evolve in bottle for many years."

-Steven Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

"There's black currant density at the core of this cabernet... the fruit is surrounded by black walnut scents of oak, lifted by the floral spice..."

-Wine & Spirits

"This Cab is serious business, and could not be mistaken for any other variety. It's excellent... fruit is big and black, ripe but not sweet."
90 Points
-Wine Enthusiast

Medium red in colour with purple hints. Lifted ripe Coonawarra Cabernet, sweet and stalky, underpinned with nougat, chocolate and spicy oak. The palate displays upfront sweet berry fruit of medium weight with long grainy tannins and a firm finish. Cellaring potential of up to 10 years.

Learn About Coonawarra

Located on the Limestone Coast of South Australia, Coonawarra is a pretty flat area, except for the vineyards, which are somewhat elevated.

There is a small strip of soil, about nine miles long and two miles wide, called Terra Rossa, or red soil/earth. It is the...

Learn About Cabernet Sauvignon

(cab-uhr-NAY sow-veeh-yawn) King of Red Many refer to Cabernet Sauvignon as the king of red grapes. Perhaps that title is due to its ability to grow worldwide in a number of climates, or to the fact that it produces wine with such character yet such diversity. Either way, this grape is responsible, as a whole or a partner, for some of the greatest wines in the world. In Bordeaux,...
