The 2003 Cabernet Sauvignon appears to possess outstanding potential. Its deep ruby/purple color is followed by notes of graphite intermixed with black currants, new saddle leather, and tobacco leaf. Rich, layered, medium to full-bodied, and pure, it should drink well for 6-7 years. This offering will not be particularly long-lived, but it possesses a pure flavor, good texture, and offers a considerable value.Rated 92 by Robert M. Parker, Jr., Wine Advocate (Drink: 2004 - 2011)
Winery Tasting Notes
A combination of premium Barossa Valley fruit has yielded this classic Cabernet Sauvignon. Customarily herbaceous and savoury, it contains capsicum, blackcurrant, spice and a suggestion of tobacco leaf.
Enormous flavour is hosted by a consummately structured palate, and fine-grain tannins provide excellene grip throughout.
