Winemaker's Notes

Bruno Tait is becoming quite well known for his high quality, big and strapping, Barossa Shiraz, having received strong critical reviews over the last several vintages. What people don't realize is that he makes a pretty serious Cabernet as well. But Cabernet coming from the Barossa almost always seems like an after thought to most people, as most consumer energy and attention almost inevitably goes towards the Shiraz'. This oversight is many times unfounded as Cabernet out of the Barossa is no second-class act and can deliver the flavor profile and textural appeal of Shiraz as well. Bruno likes his wines to have lots of texture, soft and supple, with sleek tannins and full on fruit intensity.

This Barossa Cabernet from Tait has an intriguing nose with perfumed, dried spice box aromas, along with black berry fruits and an earthy underpinning. The palate is intensely fruity in a medium-full bodied format with ultra, silky, fine-grained tannins that allows this wine to be consumed now with great pleasure or throughout the next 6-8 years. A very full on fleshy style that will please those who are looking for a Cabernet that is mouth filling and soft textured with good fruit intensity - all the things that the Barossa is famous for.
