James Halliday 97 points!
70% Coonawarra, 27% Margaret River and 3% McLaren Vale, a blend Roger Warren would have been proud of. Margaret River contributes cassis, herbs and spices; Coonawarra an elusive touch of mint, olives and acidity; McLaren Vale a hint of dark chocolate. The cumulative effect is a wine with a fragrant, cedary bouquet, the tannins superfine and mouthwatering. All up, shoulders up convincingly to Bordeaux.

“The flagship of the Hardys portfolio, the Thomas Hardy Cabernet Sauvignon is the best cabernet sauvignon produced by Hardys in any one vintage”

Beautiful cabernet. Elegant power. Mulberry, blackcurrant, chocolate, black olives, mint. Tannin pours on a sense of gravelly, almost gamey, control. Feels fresh throughout. Excellent length. Tobacco/leaf notes. You just have to sit back and admire a wine like this.
