A great example of a Clare Valley Cabernet of great strength and texture. The wine fills the palate with generous rich berry fruit and great varietal Cabernet character. Fine drying tannins balance with the fruit weight and subtle oak spice.

Expert Reviews

"It carries lifted Frangipane perfume, exotic spice, nutmeg, savoury, cedary oak spice and layers of blackcurrant. Bound with controlled concentration, but calls for a decade for fruit and oak to fine their happy place. "Rating 94 - Tyson Stelzer, WBM (01/Jul/2010)

"... Smelt pretty good once it opened up – black fruit, mint and liquorice, a little tar and good oak. It’s a big wine, full bodied, but lacks shape and line through the palate with the acidity looking somewhat unsettled and obvious too. Some grainy gritty tannin and a good dollop of flavour, but at present a clumsy wine that needs time to settle."Rating 87 - Gary Walsh, Winefront (31/Oct/2010)

The nose displays generous notes of cassis and violet with underlying hints of chocolate, mulberry and classic Clare eucalyptus.

Palate

A great example of a Clare Valley Cabernet of great strength and texture. The wine fills the palate with generous rich berry fruit and great varietal Cabernet character. Fine drying tannins balance with the fruit weight and subtle oak spice.

Wine Background

The Enterprise Cabernet Sauvignon, sourced from our exceptional Enterprise Vineyard in the Clare Valley, is evocative of all that we have come to expect from the Enterprise wine, continuing the legacy that began with our 1974 vintage.
