Sandalford Estate Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2007

This wine is a stand-out, reminding me of a classed growth Bordeaux (from a not too shabby year either). This was in fact my guess having tasted the wine blind. Not the shabby bit, that is. It has an intensely saturated purple colour. On the nose, there is a medium intensity aroma of cigar box and black fruits. On the palate, its long length stands out. Also there are some blackcurrants accompanied by moderate tannins and medium “plus” acidity. For the price, a bargain. I will certainly be buying more of this. 95 points
