Domaine a Cabernet Sauvignon 2006
Deep Ruby colour. Aromatics of Chinese plum blossom, blackberry and clove woven with whispers of cedar. A complex wine driven by terroir and a vintage of tremendous quality. Ripe dark cherry and cassis characters with seamless elegance, fine tannic structure and perfect natural balance.
In a good year, the marginal microclimate of the Coal Valley in Tasmania can fully ripen Cabernet - in 2000 it did. Along with the best of Margaret River, this is as close to left bank Bordeaux as Australia gets. Superb Cabernet.
