External Reviews for D Arenberg Cabernet Sauvignon
This wine has a deep, dark, vibrant black appearance suggesting a full-bodied dry red. The aroma is dense and complex with a mix of fragrant fruit dominated by cassis, blackcurrants, mulberries, coffee, toffee and dark chocolate with fine cedar oak developing in the background. The palate shows a lighter, fresher, more elegant style of wine compared to recent vintages but is overwhelmingly complex and compressed. Young primary flavours of dark black fruits, violets, cassis and red currants mixed with edges of dried herbs, green bean and capsicum dominate. As the wine opens up an abundant mix of violets, earthy notes and mulberries appear over dark fruits with really tight flowery tannins and minerals that fan out on the finish. The great fruit, length and fragrance of this wine show the overall elegance of this wonderful vintage.
