Cabernet Sauvignon 2006


Tasting Notes

Paracombe Cabernet Sauvignon is a single vineyard wine with grapes harvested exclusively from Paul and Kathy Drogemuller’s vineyard, from Cabernet vines planted in 1992. The fruit was harvested early to mid-April, fermented in small open tanks and hand plunged. Once pressed the wine was left to mature in French Oak 18 months. Paracombe Cabernet Sauvignon presents deep, colour in the glass with rich, full fruit flavour. The bouquet has a delicious mix of aromas including cherries, blackcurrant and spicy notes. The palate backs up with generous, juicy flavour. Enjoy ripe currants and berries textured with hints of fine, spicy tannins with a leisurely, long, finish. Drinking exceptionally well now.

What reviewers are saying section

This is a brilliant crimson edged with brick. Cedary wine of stony roll-in-the-mouth tannins, like ball bearings across the gums massaging currant, cedar and tobacco leaf flavours. Elegance is written all over this. Drinking well now, but will continue to impress. And the price! Ned Goodwin, Halliday Wine Companion
