Earthworks Cabernet Sauvignon Barossa 2006

External Review by Prestige Wine & Spirits:

The 2006 Cabernet was aged for 6 months, 70% in tank and 30% in seasoned French oak. Dark ruby/purple-colored, it has an expressive nose of spice box and black currants. This leads to a medium-bodied, smooth-textured, easy-going wine with abundant sweet fruit, light tannin, and a long, fruit-filled finish. Drink this outstanding value over the next 6 years.

Dark and ripe, with crisp tannins around a fleshy core of black cherry and smoky, creamy grace notes. Finishes with welcome intensity. Drink now through 2010.

Bright ruby-red color. Sharply focused cherry and blackcurrant aromas are deepened by mocha and black tea. Zestier red fruit flavors are a bit wound up initially but gain sweetness and flesh with air, picking up dusty tannins as well. The nervy, brisk finish leaves behind a strong redcurrant quality.

Bright red. Spicy cherry and red berry aromas show a vaguely candied character. Firm and juicy, with vibrant, spice-accented redcurrant and cherry flavors on a silky, medium-bodied frame. Softens on the finish, showing an alluring spicy quality and good persistence. This is still youthfully tangy so give it some air.
