Very deep in color, this wine is now showing signs of maturity in the hints of brick red hue that appear in the glass. The nose is inviting, displaying pure red berry fruits, along with rosehip, mint and cedar aromas. The palate is lovely and full-bodied, packed with fruit flavor, has excellent balance and a long, soft finish.
Lamb and Cabernet is a proven and classic match. Roast leg or rack of lamb with lots of rosemary and garlic and roasted vegetables is an ideal accompaniment to our Noon Reserve Cabernet, especially the older vintages. In fact just about anything roasted is lovely. The thought of a small roast chicken wrapped in pancetta or stuffed under the skin with herbs brings us to the kitchen in search of a roasting pan.
The Wine AdvocateDeep garnet-purple in color, the 2004 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve exudes notes of creme de cassis, marmite, some dried herbs and meat with a touch of menthol. Full and generous, it has great mid-palate weight supported by a crisp acid line and medium-firm, fine-grained tannins. It finishes long. Drink it now to 2024+.
