Berrys Bridge Cabernet Sauvignon 2001

Game of two halves.

Reviewed by Figjam - Tuesday 12 April 2011 08:52 PM

Must admit started drinking within 10 minutes of opening. For the first 30 minutes or so it was closed but somehow good - quite smooth with rich ripe dark berries and a dry finish. Then we had dinner (beef & port casserole) during which the wine changed dramatically. Still a smooth mouthfeel but the fruit became dryer prunes,dates etc and some aniseed made an appearance. Also got a little hotter. Alcohol is 14% - felt like 13 at the start and 14.5 at the end. Both wines were quite drinkable but I liked the closed version better.
