Sandalford Cabernet Sauvignon Margaret River Estate Reserve 2008
Color: Dark Cherry with a magenta hue. Nose: Classic Margaret River nose with savoury notes of bay leaf, rosemary and sage. Underneath the primary fruit of violets and blackcurrant can be sensed with seamless cedar-like vanillin oak nuances poking through Palate: Magnificent full-bodied wine with silky tannins and bags of dark briary fruit flavours and toasty oak elements woven through the mix. Long, persistent finish whereupon the oak influence is most noticeable but the quality is outstanding. Upon release this is still a young wine by any measure and will continue to blossom and open-up in the next decade or so.
