2012 Oakridge 864 Cabernet Sauvignon

Cracka Rating

Cracka Review

Welcome to the big league. This is Yarra Cabernet of the utmost finesse made by one of the most talented winemakers in the region. It’s still one of the unsung varieties of the Yarra but this cool climate Cabernet is one for the long haul. The 864 range represent the very pinnacle of Oakridge winemaking and are critically acclaimed and very collectable. This displays curranty aromas with notes of cedar and vanillin oak before a palate of black fruit and toasty oak. It’s structured with even tannins before a cedary persistence on the finish.

Winemaker's Notes

Colour: Bright, dark purple red

Aroma: Classic cabernet nose of cassis and blackberry underpinned with varietal leaf notes, earth and cigar box nuance. Unmistakable, fresh and bright

Palate: To taste, it is polished and proportioned. Even, filigreed, lacy tannin right across the palate from start to finish displaying blackcurrant, briar and tobacco leaf. The plummy richness contrasted by the raspberry like freshness. Line and length. Delicious, fragrant medium bodied and supple

Alc/vol: 12.4%
