Cooks Lot Cabernet Sauvignon Lot#9999 2011

A handy drop of Cabernet Sauvignon from Orange, New South Wales.

Bright in appearance, the nose is fragrant with buckets of blackberries and cassis.

Blackberries flavours were abundant with a nice touch of oak complementing it. These flavours were soft, but not as full and punchy as I hoped. If anything, for my palate, they dissolved a little sooner than expected.

I do prefer a bigger Cabernet, but if soft elegance is what you seek, seek no more.

Another success story from this small operator. Winestate gives it 4 stars. Easy to see how.
