2007 Cabernet Sauvignon

$40.00

Tasting Notes

Paracombe Cabernet Sauvignon is a single vineyard wine with grapes harvested exclusively from the Paul and Kathy Drogemullers 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 the reviewers are saying

Good colour for age; the climate is not so cool as to thin out the wine, instead simply investing it with a spicy, zesty freshness; superfine tannins frame the classy blackcurrant fruit of the palate, oak integrated. James Halliday, Wine Companion
