":77% from Margaret River, 33% Mount Barker, fermented in various stainless steel formats, matured for 22 months in French barriques (60% new). The oak is of high quality and makes a positive contribution, but you know it will succumb to the sheer intensity of the fruit over the years to come, the tannin balance calculated to the last ounce. The wine's best years are yet to come." Drink by 2014. 96 Points

"A powerful wine variety that makes arguably the world's greatest red wines. Characters include blackcurrant, mint, leaf, eucalyptus and black olive with other nuances of cigar box, cedar, chocolate, tobacco, coffee and mocha. Best in moderately cool areas and generally blended with other Bordeaux varieties (Malbec, Merlot and Cabernet Franc). The flagship 'Abercrombie' Cabernet Sauvignon is renowned to be one of the best and most collected Cabernets in Australia and is rated 'Excellent' in Langton's Classification of Australian Wine."
