Parker Coonawarra Estate First Growth Cabernet Sauvignon 2010

Impressive deluxe. A superb example of Coonawarra Cabernet.

The best of the best has been thrown at this. There's even a splash of Petit Verdot to wet your whistle (3%). It spent two years in new French oak before another three in bottle prior to release.

Violets whisper out before delicate and elegant (yet robust) fruit parades its way effortlessly. This is all despite the depth and a whack of tannin. A tremendously satisfying and long finish only begs for more. If only this could be my every day drink.

I licked the glass out. So will you.

Longevity is not an issue here. Cellar long term. Or not.

Excellent.
