Nugan Estate Cabernet Sauvignon Riverina Visión 2009

External Review by Vines Wine and Spirits:

Deep crimson with a youthful purple hue. Appealing aromas of red berry melded with licorice and vanillin oak nuances. Rich and concentrated flavours of blackcurrant and cassis with soft supple tannins, vanillin oak and elegant acid structure.

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

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 Bordeauxrsquo;s lower level, but frequently emerges from Australia. Drink it over the next 4ndash;5 years.

New world in style, focusing on purity of fruit and an enveloping softness of sweet tannin. Multiple layers of currants and blackberries are woven among undertones of chocolate and hints of spicy black pepper displaying all the complexity usually found in wine hovering around the $25-35 mark. It is long, well balanced and thanks to the screwcap closure, consistent and rewarding.

The 2002 Cabernet Sauvignon possesses excellent fruit and texture in addition to plenty of varietal character in its tobacco-edged, crème de cassis aromatics and flavor profile. It is moderately tannic, medium-bodied, and filled with fruit.

Originally from Valencia, Spain, the Nugan Family is known more for their exceptional produce than for their wine. That having been said, this could well be the very best under-$10.00 Cabernet I have ever tasted from Australia. With a burst of black fruits that just won't quit, the long, full finish is met with just the perfect dose of vanilla. Of course, any winemaker will tell you that exceptional fruit is the single most important factor for making a great wine.
