Food Pairings for Black Opal Cabernet Sauvignon
External Reviews for Black Opal Cabernet Sauvignon
This is typically Australian in its rich, outgoing fruit. The density and concentration are all based around great black-fruit flavors, which give strength and power to the wine. Delicious, soft tannins underpin it, but hardly affect the ripeness of the fruit.
Supple and elegantly balanced, with a core of pretty plum and berry flavors and light layers of spice and earth wafting across it. Very tasty now.
The rich varietal blackcurrant, mint and spice nose is well supported by a palate that is full of fruit flavor, balanced by the subtle use of oak. The wine is warm in the mouth and the tannins are soft and well integrated. This is a classic Australian red wine made from the worldrsquo;s most noble red variety.
The nose starts out with bacon and toast. the palate is loaded with cranberry and cherry fruit, but that doesnrsquo;t mean itrsquo;s lean and mean. Quite the contrary; itrsquo;s round and spicy, with some Zin-like character to the flavor profile.
Bright and juicy, with black cherry and herb flavors on a lively frame. Drink now.
An easily likable, unpretentious Cabernet meant for everyday enjoyment, displaying spicy berry and black currant flavors backed by light tannins.
"The Black Opal Cabernet Sauvignon is a wine of great finesse and character
