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.
With respect to the 2001 Cabernet Sauvignon, I have not tasted such a great value in Cabernet Sauvignon since the 1990 Cabernet Sauvignon from Marietta. There are 4,300 cases of the 100% Cabernet from Padthaway and Middleton. Barrel-fermented in 100% new American oak and then matured in both French and American wood for twelve months, it possesses an opaque black/purple color that is thick to the rim. The classic bouquet is cregrave;me de cassis, licorice, and spice box is followed by a full-bodied, opulent effort with super-rich fruit as well as a long, lush finish. This 2001 will keep for a decade, but it is impossible to resist at present.
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.
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 classic 2004 Cabernet Sauvignon, offers tell-tale aromas and flavors of black currants, high class cigar smoke, and herbs. Medium to full-bodied with dense, layered fruit flavors, an attractive suppleness and an easy-going style with admirable depth, it should drink well for 2ndash;3 years.
