Wine Advocate Review
Rated 95
Deep garnet colored, the 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate displays a very slowly evolving nose of crème de cassis, chocolate-covered cherries, vanilla pod and smoked meats with touches of dried Provence herbs, cedar chest and cloves. Medium-bodied, plush, rich and generously fruited in the mouth, it has a wonderfully spicy character and long baking spice and black fruit-laced finish. Drink now-2042. (28th Feb 2018)

Wine Tasting Notes
  • Nose: Huge, powerful; layer on layer of spice, cedar, earth, and tobacco, all over a rich base of ripe black cherry, blackcurrants, cassis and blueberry jam.
  • Palate: Rich, round, juicy and mouth coating, the palate delivers black cherry and blackcurrant before moving on to brighter red fruits. More subtle tones of butterscotch, anise, and sweet oak complement the fruit beautifully.
  • Finish: The huge classic structure of fine grain tannin and firm acidity persist all the way through to a clean, crisp, spicy finish.
