Winemaker's Notes:

The Terra Rossa Cabernet Sauvignon is deliberately produced as a more forward style. The wine is soft and rich with intense ripe berry aromas and smoky vanillan oak. The palate is again rich but not as restrained as the First Growth and showing slightly less grip.

It is from a great vintage and still has the potential to develop with careful cellaring but can be immediately enjoyed with full flavoured foods.

My Notes:

About Parker Coonawarra Estate:

Parker Coonawarra Estates have achieved an unmatched reputation both within Australia and overseas where fine wines are revered for integrity and consistently superb quality.

Commercial constraints played no part in the development of Parker Coonawarra Estate.

The Parker Estate Vineyard, situated at the southern end of Coonawarra, was established in 1985 on the rich Terra Rossa soil over the limestone of Coonawarra and carries Cabernet Sauvignon as the prominent variety with minor plantings of Merlot, Petit Verdot, and Cabernet Franc.
