Plantagenet Australia Cabernet Sauvignon 2003

Dense and elegant, but not heavy, cool climate Cabernet Sauvignon with a leafy influence to a core of blackberry and blackcurrant flavours. Itâ€™s probably not everybodyâ€™s cup of tea but I like the wineâ€™s complex array of vibrant flavours. Some bottle development adds to the rich tapestry.
Tasted: Jul 2007 Average price: NZD $33 (~USD $27)
