This is an awesome, classic Cabernet. It's all there on the nose, through the body and on to the finish. I gave it an extra point or two simply for the value. I don't think I've ever tasted a better Cabernet under $25. I now have official go-ahead to purchase a case.
I got this wine as a delayed birthday present and what a treat that was. This medium bodied Cab is integrated with pronounced aromas of black currant and cedar and subtle notes of strawberry and vanilla. Tannins are dusty and refined to tannic (decant for about an hour) and the finish is smooth and long. It’s good to drink now, but if you wait for couple of years, you will be nicely rewarded. Expected aging potential is up to 2016 to 2018. I must note that it has been a while since I had Australian red with a traditional cork. This wine reminds me of Cipressi Macchiarossa 2005, though a bit younger. My impression: BEAUTIFUL, 91 pts - a recommended buy. Tasted Aug/10.
