Cabernet Sauvignon 2006
Rich expressive flavours of cassis, mulberry and a hint of eucalypt. French oak maturation adds touches of dark chocolate, cedar and spice.Download Full Winemaker Note
At release, the wine displays deep red colour with a youthful purple hue.
At release, the wine has bold aromas of cassis, cherry, black olive and black berry fruit. The fruit aromas are balanced by a subtle mint & savoury notes from quality French oak maturation.
This is a wine of considerable generosity. It has distinctive varietal structure and persistence of fine tannins. The palate has abundant sweet fruit, which is juicy and full in character suggesting a vintage of substantial quality. The wine demonstrates the hallmark Cabernet Sauvignon characters of ripe berry fruit, cassis, cinnamon, spice and tobacco. The wine is rich and mouth filling and has a complete, well balanced structure and great length. This wine has the pedigree to age superbly.
This wine has been crafted to be enjoyed upon release but will continue to develop and reward patience with careful cellaring up to and possibly beyond 2016.
