Slightly dull medium red. Aromas of bitter cherry, cinnamon, herbs and eucalyptus; slightly stewy. Then reasonably ripe but somewhat heavy and lacking in clarity; began with stewed fruit flavors but grew a bit fresher in the glass. Finishes with decent sweetness and structure.
Round and spicy, a polished style with spicy oak wrapping around the currant and tar flavors, finishing silky. Drink now through 2006.
Soft, supple, ripe and generous with its currant, cherry and wild berry aromas and flavors, lingering nicely on the spicy finish. Immensely appealing stuff. Drink now through 2010.
Sparky and Sarah Marquis, among Australiarsquo;s most in-demand consulting winemakers, partnered with American importer Dan Phillips a few years ago to create this brand, which is geared entirely for export to the United States. The wine is immensely appealing mdash; soft, supple and ripe in flavor.
The outstanding 2002 Cabernet Sauvignon, like the Merlot, is produced primarily from McLaren Vale and Padthaway fruit. Yields on all these wines are restricted to about for tons of fruit per acre, low for wines at this price. The dense purple-colored Cabernet reveals classic aromas of cedar, tobacco leaf, and red as well as black currants. Creamy textured with noticable wood (it was aged in 80% American and 20% French oak, all one year old), it finishes with considerable glycerin, ripeness, and sweet tannin. One of the worldrsquo;s greatest values in Cabernet Sauvignon, it is tempting to say this delicious offering will last only 2ndash;3 years. Nevertheless, I would opt to drink this over the next 3ndash;4 years.
The 2003 Cabernet Sauvignon is a much smaller scaled, more evolved Cabernet than the 2002. Its dark ruby color is followed by classic notes of tobacco leaf, creme de cassis, and a touch of toasty, smoky oak. With a medium-bodied, supple finish, it should drink well for 3ndash;4 years.
