Katnook Estate Odyssey Cabernet Sauvignon
Cabernet Sauvignon
Ranked #26 of 43 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon from Coonawarra
3 Stars
Huon Hooke

Huon Hooke

Deep red colour with a purple rim. Very oaky nose: coconuts galore and vanilla; hard to taste much except oak here. Unbalanced. Aggressive oaky tannins. Age will no doubt help, but it will always be an oaky style.
Tasted: 26/12/2011
Drink: 2014 to 2028

92 Points Robert Parker

Looking a decade into the past, the 2008 Odyssey Cabernet Sauvignon is earthy, dark and dense, with meaty notes that do a nice job highlighting the cassis fruit. It's medium to full-bodied, with velvety tannins and a long finish. It should drink well through 2025.

91 Points Robert Parker

Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2008 Odyssey Cabernet Sauvignon opens with slight whiffs of dried berries and prunes plus spice and fruit cake accents over the aromatic core of blackcurrant cordial. With a medium to firm level of chewy tannins and crisp acid to frame, the full-bodied palate is rich and concentrated before finishing long. Drink it now to 2020+.

94 Points James Halliday

Has been accorded the full Odyssey treatment, matured for 34 months in a mixture of French and American barriques, 70% new; a full-bodied wine, with abundant blackcurrant and mulberry fruit, and tannins that have not been silenced by the protracted barrel ageing. Drink to 2023.

RP 90 points: Deep garnet colored with a hint of purple, the 2008 Odyssey Cabernet Sauvignon presents warm berry notes of creme de cassis and fruits of the forest, compote with underlying hints of dried plums, Chinese five spice and cedar. Full bodied and with a generous amount of dried berry and spice flavors, it has a medium to high level of chewy tannins, refreshing acid and a long finish. Drink it now to 2020+.
