Tasting Notes by Ben Edwards

2002 Cabernet Sauvignon

Deep crimson in colour (almost impenetrable), the nose displays aromas of violets, cedar and luscious sweet cassis fruits. The full-bodied palate is crammed full of fruit, cedar, hints of olives and gorgeous fine, silky tannins that hold the finish for a considerable time. Despite its weight, this wine is surprisingly soft and supple on the finish with moderate acidity that balances the abundant tannin and fruit. Anticipated maturity: 2005-2012.
