Ranked #13 of 352 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon from Australia
(Coonawarra & Margaret River) Refined, super-elegant Cabernet Sauvignon with roasted chestnut, blackcurrant, cassis, liquorice and classy oak. Multi-layered wine with a mix of fruit and savoury components. Very powerful red that promises to age magnificently but is certainly able to be appreciated now
Drink: 2015 to 2030
97 Points James Halliday
70% Coonawarra, 27% Margaret River and 3% McLaren Vale, a blend Roger Warren would have been proud of. Margaret River contributes cassis, herbs and spices; Coonawarra an elusive touch of mint, olives and acidity; McLaren Vale a hint of dark chocolate. The cumulative effect is a wine with a fragrant, cedary bouquet, the tannins superfine and mouthwatering. All up, shoulders up convincingly to Bordeaux. Drink to 2042.
