Reilly's Cabernet Sauvignon Barking Mad 2004

External Review by Premier Wine & Spirits:

Deep ruby. Ripe if rather straightforward blueberry and boysenberry betray no earth, animal or vegetal character. Plush and sweet on the palate, which displays vivid dark berry liqueur flavors and slow-building tannins. Zestier red berries arrive on the finish, adding lift and refreshing cut. Drink this now for its lively fruit.

Ripe blackberry, raspberry, some toasted oak and hints of eucalyptus swirl on the nose, creating a complex array of savory-sweet aromas. Full-bodied with a lush, juicy texture and soft tannins, "Barking Mad" Cab is a more approachable red than its daunting name would suggest.

Bright and distinctive. A jazzy mouthful of blackberry and mint, with a tinge of smoky meat as the finish lingers effortlessly. Drink now through 2010.

The value-priced wines include the dark ruby/purple-tinged 2004 Cabernet Sauvignon Barking Mad, a 100% Cabernet Sauvignon aged in 300 liter French and American wood. A knock-out bargain, it offers notes of cedar, spice box, a touch of mint, and loads of black currant fruit. This ripe, soft, round Cabernet is ideal for drinking now and over the next 5ndash;6 years.

Firm, focused and distinctive for a roasted hazelnut overtone to the dark berry, anise and tar flavors, lingering on the well-buffed finish. Drink now through 2014.
