Howard Park Abercrombie Australia Cabernet Sauvignon 2005

5 Star Rating
96/100 551
Strong sweet berry, spice, cedar and aromatic mint flavours underpinned by subtle classy oak. This really is a very impressive wine - accessible now but with enormous cellaring potential. Wonderful fruit purity and length. A truly world class wine.
