Ruby red color. Enticing aromas of blackcurrant, tobacco, green tea and mint. The palate is rich and concentrated whilst the elegant French oak gives a 'subtle lift' to the wine. Soft supple tannins give the wine added texture and weight and the long, lingering finish ensures this wine will age gracefully for 10 years plus.
89% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Cabernet Franc, 5% Shiraz
"Smooth and velvety, with a cushion of fine tannins holding an array of creamy currant, plum, mint and spice flavors, lingering enticingly. Drink now through 2015."
"Blended of 89% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Cabernet Franc and 5% Shiraz, the 2007 Noble Barossa Cabernet Sauvignon comes from a single vineyard in the Bethany sub-region. Deep garnet-black colored, it has intense notes of creme de cassis, kirsch, tar, anise, menthol and a whiff of leather. Rich and full-bodied with a medium-firm level of fine tannins, it has a good amount of invigorating acid and a long finish. Drinking now, it should cellar to 2016+."
The Wine Advocate
"This full-bodied, richly textured Cabernet features berry and slightly herbal notes on the nose, but the flavors are riper and darker than that, veering toward chocolate and cassis. Finishes long and lingering, with the fruit coming to the fore."
