Clarendon Hills Hickinbotham Cabernet Sauvignon 2002

This is the wine that Roman refers to as ‘My Latour’

Reviewed by carson_au - Friday, 8 January 2010

This is the wine that Roman refers to as ‘My Latour’ and is not afraid to draw parallels and even admit that is where the inspiration came from. This is one the biggest Cabernet – a wine of monumental structure yet displaying a degree of flamboyance. Tasted last week, the wine with opaque black crimson colour with deep crimson hue. The nose is beautiful, notes of violets and black currant emerge over a subtle spice end note. The palate takes awesome, with explosive flavour and delivers exceptional length and depth. Flavours of blackcurrant, blackpepper and spice are enhanced by a hint of confectionary and fine dry tannins. Perfect balance, with exceptionally long aftertaste of blackcurrant, blackpepper and spice. A Chateau Latour 2000 value at $700-900 dollars and a bottle of 2002 Hickinbotham Cabernet Savuvignon only cost around $130. What a bargin!
