Katnook Estate Cabernet Sauvignon Coonawarra Odyssey 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

A wine with ripe, rich fruit combined with complex oak and barrel matured flavors. This highly prized Coonawarra wine is a benchmark style with beautifully intense, pure, blackcurrant aromas, mocha oak complexity, superb volume and dense chocolaty tannins. Odyssey is the essence of Coonawarra style, with remarkable balance and minerality. It has established proven cellaring potential and has a very keen secondary market following. The concentrated and powerful Odyssey is selected from the most outstanding parcels of intense Cabernet fruit, from specific vineyard rows planted on rich clay terra rossa loams over a thick hard layer of limestone. After vinification in small batch fermenters, maturation takes place over approximately 36 to 40 months in a combination of new French and new American barriques. Some parcels are “double oaked” to increase flavour complexity.

Aromas are of roasted meat and tobacco. It's just an excellent wine, the oak overlay giving just enough flavor and patina to deep, liquerish blackberry flavors. "Cigar box" is a descriptor I don't get to use often when talking about Oz wine, but it'... Wine Enthusiast. A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from South Australia in Australia. 2000 Katnook Estate Cabernet Sauvignon Odyssey 750ml
