(2001 Vintage) Deep red with purple hues. Obvious varietal fruit lift of sweet blackcurrant (cassis) andblueberry fruit, with hints of spice and other stone fruits.Subtle underlying oak completes the offering. Rich and generous with alluring varietal characters.Blackcurrent and chocolaty fruit characters are in balancewith the French and American oak. Tannins are finelytextured and the wine finishes with an excellent burst offlavour. The Thomas Hyland Cabernet Sauvignonreflects the quality of the vintage...

    This was a decent wine - smooth and velvety, lacking a little flavour but damn nice.
