Katnook Founder's Block 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon
2006 Coonawarra vintage will be remembered as being very early and for the very low yields. Slightly above average temperatures prevailed during summer and extended into the ripening. The ideal conditions produced grapes that were disease free and in excellent condition. The 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon wines have generous palate structures with attractive ripe varietal fruit flavours with classic regional mint notes and soft lingering tannins. This is quintessential Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon. Supple, medium bodied wine with elegant aromas of red berries, violets and hints of mint. Well proportioned with generous fruit and a persistent finish. An easy partner to a wide range of foods including pasta, red meats, quail and dishes with spicy or smokey flavours.
