Ranked #23 of 34 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon from Coonawarra
Medium full red, slight brick rim. Toasty barrel aromas; heavily charred oak, caramellised oak, rather forward developmentand savory tannin finish. Rather tannin dom and grippy.
96 Points James Halliday
Dense colour; an intense wine with tremendous depth of flavour despite modest alcohol; blackcurrant and blackberry fruit resonates through the palate, which has absorbed its lengthy stay in French oak; the tannins, too, are balanced. Drink to 2025.
