Nugan Estate Cabernet Sauvignon Riverina Visión 2008

External Review by Premier Wine & Spirits:

Ruby-red. Red- and blackcurrant on the nose, with complicating anise and black tea qualities. Firm red berry fruit flavors are youthfully taut and nicely focused. Finishes clean, juicy and persistent.

An excellent value, the medium-bodied 2003 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate possesses leafy black currant characteristics intermixed with notes of tobacco and wood. This elegant, fruity, flavorful, mouthfilling Cabernet should be drunk over the next 3-4 years.

A classic mint-spicy Cabernet fruit nose with some vanilla oak characters. Lively and fresh aromas. On the palate, integration of spicy oak with rich, ripe Cabernet fruit flavors, indicating a wine with great length and lingering finish.

Light and spicy, with a tight grip to the fine tannins around peppery raspberry flavors. Best after 2011.

The 2008 Vision Cabernet Sauvignon is dark ruby-colored with a nose of cedar, cassis, spice box, and black currant. Medium-bodied and well-balanced. Nugan Estate is a consistently good source for value.

The top-flight 2001 Cabernet Sauvignon includes a dollop of Shiraz in the blend. It possesses juicy cassis fruit, medium body, soft tannins, and admirable flavor ripeness as well as intensity. This type of wine is rarely found at Bordeaux's lower level, but frequently emerges from Australia. Drink it over the next 4-5 years.

The 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon was fermented in American oak and aged for 12 months in new and used French oak. Purple-colored, it exhibits a nose of cedar, tobacco, cassis and black currants. Medium-bodied and forward in the mouth, the wine is nicely balanced and friendly. Drink it over the next 3-4 years.
