Clarendon Hills Cabernet Sauvignon Clarendon Brookman 2005

Member Review by dynowine:

Fascinating wine with unusual nose and taste for the variety. Elegant, very dark, almost black color. Nose of mild dusty bush, nutty dried slightly overripe fruits, and drying wall paint (not unpleasant). In the mouth smooth, balanced, tastes similar to scraping dried fruit off a dusty oak plank in a room with drying paint, again interesting and different. Finish has a nice hum, lingers of fruit and makes up a bit for the earlier odd behavior. This is an interesting wine.
