2001 Parker Coonawarra Estate Terra Rossa Cabernet Sauvignon
An outstanding example of near mature Coonawarra Cabernet. The wine has been matured in French and American oak and has developed very well since its release in 2003.
Very deep almost opaque black crimson colour with deep brick red hue. Top notes of spice, blackcurrant, white pepper, cedar and truffle. On the palate layers of mint, spice, leather, dark chocolate and mocha create a complex palate flavour profile. Velvet tannins. Aftertaste of dark chocolate, leather and spice.
