2003 Clarendon Hills "Sandown" Cabernet Sauvignon Clarendon South Australia

SKU #1244917 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Strutting its stuff at present, the 2003 Cabernet Sauvignon Sandown Vineyard (made from 75-year-old vines) is Bratasiuk’s St.-Emilion from McLaren Vale. A wonderfully rich, packed and stacked, dense purple-colored wine, it offers up scents of fruitcake, creme de cassis, underbrush, cedar, and spice box. Full, rich, and powerful, displaying even more potential and intensity than it did last year, this beauty can be approached now, but it won’t hit its stride for another 3-4 years. It should last for two decades. (RP) Inner quote mark (10/2005)

91 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark This wine’s flavors have a cooler-climate profile to them—think red and black cherry, rather than cassis or plum fruit. Blueberry and bread flour steps in midpalate, and march on through the long finish. Lifted, tight, and very pretty. Inner quote mark (8/2005)

Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Opaque inky-ruby color. Ripe, almost porty aromas of scorched earth and tree bark, along with ripe currant and cherry scents. Dense and chewy in the mouth, with very dark flavors of kirsch, roasted coffee and chocolate. Finishes ripe, dense, tannic, and long. (JR) Inner quote mark (7/2005)

Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Tangy, with red pepper and mineral notes, this has extra dimensions to go with the ripe black fruit character, finishing with a bit of grip. Needs cellaring. Inner quote mark (6/2005)
