Winemaker's Notes

The 2005 Cabernet re-inforces our high opinion of the '05 vintage across the board. This wine is deep in colour and retains a youthful purple-ish hue. The nose is full of sweet, ripe blackcurrant, cedar, spice and fresh earth, along with a touch of mint. It smells very fresh and young. The palate shows enormous depth and richness of flavour, filling the mouth - it is rudely easy to drink! The wine appears very well balanced with no heat or heaviness despite its size . The finish is long, the flavours lingering for over 45 seconds. Quite an experience!

Critical Acclaim

"The 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve is sourced from a vineyard planted in 1972. It was aged in small French and American oak for 18 months. Opaque purple in color, it offers up classic Cabernet Sauvignon aromas of smoky oak, pencil lead, scorched earth, black currants, and blackberry liqueur. This leads to a sumptuous, savory, opulent, full-bodied wine which amazingly combines great power with elegance. Although there is plenty of structure and aging potential, the wine is seamless, sexy, and very enticing. Those able to delay gratification can safely cellar this great Cabernet for 10-20 years but it is hard to resist now. "

Learn About Noon

The darling of the Australian small winery scene, Noon has a great following both in Australia and in particular the US. Drew Noon produces some unique wines packed with ripe red fruit and often high levels of alcohol. Drew Noon took over operating the family owned Noon winery after spending time as Winemaker at Cassegrain and other ventures in Victoria.

The Eclipse and Reserve shiraz can command high levels of capital increase and are definitely wines to hold on to (if you can get them).

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.
