Strong aromas of spice, cassis, and green pepper upon opening and even after letting it breathe for an hour in the glass. On the palate the cassis and black currant led to spice and then a green pepper note in the finish. Had dimension and seemed like a young Bordeaux. Perhaps even more time in the bottle would help?

Winemaker's Notes:

Winemaker comments by Peter Gago Colour: Deep plum red. Nose: Distinctively Cabernet - varietal leafy/cassis fruits to the fore. Cool climate notes of regional Coonawarra and Bordertown fruit. Palate: Balanced palate with a lingering sweetness/ ripeness of blackcurrant Cabernet fruits, laced with black olive and a suggestion of mint. Quite a reasonable grip on the finish without tannin aggression (tannins are ripe and balanced). as with the other reds from this South australian vintage, drinkability is the hallmark. Vineyard region Coonawarra and Bordertown with significant parcels from Margaret river and Mclaren Vale. Smaller parcels robe and Padthaway. Vintage Conditions Coonawarra experienced a very cool spring with reasonable rainfall leading to abundant shoot growth. rain fell in late December, followed by very dry, hot conditions from the New Year until March. The consistency of quality that will be a hallmark of the year. The quality of Bordertown Cabernet Sauvignon was a highlight of the vintage and it was rated among the strongest in the company. grape Variety Cabernet Sauvignon Maturation 12 months in new French (16%) and new american (12%), and used French and american oak. Wine analysis alc/Vol: 13.50% acidity: 6.80g/l ph: 3.49 last tasted 18-Nov-02 peak drinking Now - 2013 Food Matches Ideally suited to Beef, Veal, Cheese.
