This wine really surprised me as I'm not typically a fan of Aussie Cabernet. Bursts of blueberry and earthy saddle leather on the tongue and hints of blackberry and eucalyptus on the nose. There's a mature oak sensibility that provides structure throughout. Very nice!

Medium red. Pretty, nicely focused bouquet of spicy red fruits, dried flowers and minerals. Poised and elegant, with vibrant red fruit flavors and notes of dried herbs and baking spices. There's a suave, supple quality here that's reminiscent of traditional Bordeaux. Finishes on a sweet, spicy cherry note, with silky tannins.

The outstanding 2001 Cabernet Sauvignon Mulberry Tree is a terrific bargain. It reveals notes of spice box, cedar, black currants, and tobacco in a medium to full-bodied, dense, rich format. With sweet tannin along with well-integrated wood and acidity, this plump, fleshy, well-made Cabernet should drink well for 7-8 years. It doesn't take a genius to realize that a $15 Cabernet Sauvignon of this quality is nearly impossible to find domestically.

Smooth and ripe, with generous blackberry and currant fruit shaded with refined tannins, lingering nicely. Drink now through 2012.

Made from 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, the dense ruby/purple-hued 2003 Cabernet Sauvignon Mulberry Tree is a nicely-textured, medium to full-bodied, elegant, rich, concentrated effort that emphasizes fruit as well as varietal character. It spent 18 months in neutral 300 liter French and American hogsheads. Drink it over the next 4-5 years. Bleasdale produces some of the most reliable as well as fairly priced wines from Langhorne Creek that are good choices for both neophytes and connoisseurs.

Smoky and caramelly at first, but there are also plenty of tart cherries and some herbal notes. Smooth enough in the mouth, this medium-bodied Cab finishes with dark chocolate flavors framing tangy cherry fruit. Drink now-2012.

A full-bodied cabernet with rich flavors of currant, black cherry and a hint of mint. The seductive flavors combine to create a beautiful, round finish.

The outrageously good 2004 Cabernet Sauvignon Mulberry Tree is a terrific bargain. This 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, aged 12 months in a combination of French and American wood, is the kind of wine that makes consumers realize there is a lot of over-priced Cabernet in the marketplace. It boasts a deep ruby/purple color, an excellent texture, and notes of underbrush, black currants, tar, sweet cassis, and cedar. Full-bodied with light to moderate tannin, it can be drunk now or cellared for a decade.

Winemaker's Notes:

This 2008 Shiraz Cabernet blend spent 15 months on predominantly American oak before bottling. The result is a smooth easy drinking red with vibrant red berry aromas that complement the spicy notes which are apparent on the palate. The minimal use of French Oak gives the wine complexity and an elegant toastiness that integrates well with the juicy forest fruits characters.
