The 2006 Estate Cabernet Sauvignon has an enticing deep garnet red color in the glass. On the nose there are complex notes of blackberry tart, clove, cinnamon, and cocoa, along with dried black currants. The mouth has a soft supple entry, youthful crisp acidity, juicy plum and rich bright red fruit notes, all complemented by loads of fine grain tannin and an under-layer of dried black currant.
Thick full bodied with heavy blackberry. I'd rate it higher than the 89 it's been getting.
Strong tannins mellowed with decanting loads of fruit cherry plum tobacco light mint
the best. peaked 20 mins into it, became a silky chocolate :))
smooth, full bodied, drinkable and easy to finish.
good with all, really good with chicken
