Sandown Cabernet Sauvignon 2005
The 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon Sandown Vineyard is sourced from 75-year-old vines. Opaque purple-coloured, it is super-fragrant with an enticing bouquet of smoky oak, scorched earth, tar, black currant, and blackberry. Opulent on the palate, it has gobs of fruit as well as enough structure to evolve for a decade. It should have a 25 year lifespan and a lengthy drinking window.
