Balnaves Cabernet Sauvignon 2002 (review)

86 points

Coonawarra, South Australia. 14%

Floral, exotic, quite opulent nose. Sleek berry fruits cabernet, glycerol and svelt oak. A little cosmetic but it finishes with savoury tannins. Not hugely concentrated, but should age gracefull over the next 5 years. Placed against Ch.Puyguraud 2002 I was surprised how the cool vintage claret was of similar weight.
