Winemaker's Notes

The 2002 Reserve Cabernet, in common with all the 2002 wines, displays a very deep color with hints of brick red indicating the first signs of maturity. The nose is intense and packed with ripe sweet blackberry aromas, along with some cedar/spice development. Decanting is once again essential to allow these wines to open up. The palate possesses enormous depth of flavor combined with a lovely degree of refinement. Intense but elegant (a characteristic of 2002). Very long finish.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2002 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve (400 cases) is a 100% Cabernet from 30-year-old vines that spent 18 months in both small and large oak barrels. It exhibits a striking bouquet of graphite, creme de cassis, new saddle leather, Chinese black tea, and vanilla. The complex aromatics are followed by a full-bodied wine of compelling purity and nobleness with layers of concentration as well as intensity. One of the most prodigious Australian Cabernet Sauvignons ever made, it should hit its prime in 3-5 years, and last for two decades or more. "
96 Points

"A feminine Cab, one that feels delicate and elegant in the mouth but has the power and intensity to beat the crap out of you, if only she were that kind of girl. On the palate, pure black-cherry fruit receives a judicious dose of smooth oak, which fades into chalk on the finish. Very classy, and quite excellent."

Learn About Cabernet Sauvignon

(cab-uhr-NAY sow-veeh-yawn) King of Red Many refer to Cabernet Sauvignon as the king of red grapes.
