Other Reviews…
Produced from a dry-farmed, 80-year-old vineyard, the 2002 Cabernet Sauvignon Ashmead is sensational. Its inky/purple color is followed by a big, sweet nose of vanillin, spice box, cedar, black currants, and flowers. Aged in a combination of 60% American and 40% French oak, it possesses supple tannin, concentrated fruit notes, and a well-delineated, pure, long finish. This young, promising Cabernet requires 2-3 more years of bottle age; it should last 15 or more.

"James Halliday - 2007 Australian Wine Companion"

The single vineyard 2002 Cabernet Sauvignon Ashmead is one of Barossa’s finest Cabernets. An inky/purple colour is accompanied by notes of graphite, black currants, dried herbs, and cedar. Rich, full, layered, and impressively endowed, it possesses plenty of grip and tannin. It has handled its three-year aging in new oak beautifully. A connoisseur’s favourite, this 2002 should hit its prime in 3-5 years, and last for 15 or more.
