Fox Creek-Reserve-Cabernet Sauvignon-2000-750mL

Strong bright rim with a mid-deep red core.

The hints of blackcurrant and blackberry are typical characters of this variety. Typically McLaren Vale produces a dark, spicy chocolate character in Cabernet and this is evident. However, this wine has fascinating aromas of mint, leather and dark cherries. The oak shows when the wine is first poured, but with a little time in the glass yields to give a subtle cinnamon, char and cherry combination.

As a young wine, the palate is a little tight. The cherry and chocolate come through as does a blackberry fruit character. The tannin and acidity are firm, but balanced for a wine that will drink well when young, preferably with food. It will develop further complexity with cellaring.

Bev Portal

Despite the challenging 2000 Vintage, this Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon is a great surprise!

Concentrated wine, elegant with firm but integrated tannins, savoury spice, earthy and meaty.

Tasted 25 Nov 2015

BP, Clio Giudici



87/100
Wine Companion
Medium to full red-purple; rich, ripe blackberry and cassis aromas are mirrored in the palate, which does however dip slightly in the middle, rising again with lingering tannins and subtle oak on the finish.
