Produced from super ripe fruit the 2002 Angus Cabernet Sauvignon is intensely inky in colour revealing a nose of concentrated black fruits and violets with light smokey oak characters. The palate is full bodied, rich and savory with some punchy tannins and a bold finish. An ideal accompaniment to red meat and in particular to premium cuts of prime beef. Will continue to improve over the next 4 - 6 years.
"Wow! What a spectacular value in 100% Cabernet Sauvignon. Four thousand cases of this gorgeously rich, pure, medium to full-bodied 2002 were produced. A dense ruby/purple color is followed by copious quantities of creme de cassis, spice, and earth aromas. Rich and textured, it is a total hedonistic turn-on that readers should consider purchasing by the case. Why can't any California wineries produce a Cabernet Sauvignon this special for a similar price? Drink it over the next 4-5 years." - Wine Advocate
"The philosophy behind Angus The Bull is to create a unique and innovative wine that provides an ideal accompaniment to prime beef. Each year the most promising parcels are hand selected and blended from premium Cabernet Sauvignon grapes sourced from a number of outstanding wine regions across Victoria and South Australia. The flexibility of this multi-regional blending approach allows for the best attributes of individual regions to be highlighted and combined for exceptional results."
