Ranked #14 of 75 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon from Western Australia
Deep purple-red, youthful colour. Bright, intense oak-driven bouquet, with abundant ripe, dark-berry fruit in the background. Not a hint of leafiness. Concentrated and profound palate flavour. The drying tannins are savoury and gripping. It's a brawling infant which demands patience. Quite raw and oaky on opening, but give it time. It responds to decanting and extended breathing. An outstanding cabernet that is likely to reward many years of cellaring.
92 Points Robert Parker
Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2010 Abercrombie Cabernet Sauvignon is still very youthful and primary on the nose, displaying aromas of creme de cassis, dark chocolate and black cherries with nuances of cedar, black olives, charcoal and fertile loam. Medium to full-bodied and densely packed with muscular, ripe black fruit and earth flavors, it has a firm level of finely grained tannins and refreshing acid to support, finishing long with notes of cloves and Indian spices coming through. Consider drinking this one 2014 to 2022+.
