"The 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve is sourced from a vineyard planted in 1972. It was aged in small French and American oak for 18 months. Opaque purple in color, it offers up classic Cabernet Sauvignon aromas of smoky oak, pencil lead, scorched earth, black currants, and blackberry liqueur. This leads to a sumptuous, savory, opulent, full-bodied wine which amazingly combines great power with elegance. Although there is plenty of structure and aging potential, the wine is seamless, sexy, and very enticing. Those able to delay gratification can safely cellar this great Cabernet for 10-20 years but it is hard to resist now. Noon Winery is owned and operated by Drew and Rae Noon. It continues to be one of Australia's benchmarks."

"Deep red in colour, with a beautiful nose of sweet ripe blackcurrants, raspberry jam, cedar/spice and a touch of mint. Shows enormous depth and richness of flavour, filling your palate. There is a ripe, seemless feel, without any harshness. Appears very well balanced, despite its size. The finish is long, the flavours lingering for over 45 seconds. Quite an experience! Optimum drinking time: The high ripeness level means this wine can be enjoyed early in its life if desired. Best now to 2020."
