2013 Tim Gramp Watervale Cabernet Sauvignon

Expert Reviews

James Halliday (2009 Vintage) says
A savoury/earthy expression of Cabernet, the bouquet and medium-bodied palate both delivering the same message; its strengths lie in its structure and length, both of prime importance for the variety.

James Halliday (2008 Vintage) says
Good hue; attractive, medium-bodied wine, with both regional and varietal typicity; the blackcurrant fruit has ripe, gently earthy tannins in support; good line, length and balance.

Campbell Mattinson & Gary Walsh (2005 Vintage) says
Some of this region's producers are the experts at making well-priced cabernet; Tim Gramp is one of them. This needed to be held back because it's solid and strong and in need of some time to soften. It's just starting to do that now. It tastes of dark leather, blackcurrant, beef stock and tar, though all these flavours carry a light blanket of sawdusty, vanillin oak. Excellent red to knock back over the next few years.

James Halliday (2004 Vintage) says
Light- to medium-bodied; cedary, earthy bottle-developed characters starting to emerge alongside a splash of redcurrant; balanced tannins and oak.

James Halliday (2003 Vintage) says
Medium-bodied; earthy/savoury aromas; an austere palate with a quite dry finish.

James Halliday (2002 Vintage) says
High pH colour; earthy/savoury/austere end of the spectrum; medium-bodied, with a core of black fruits.

James Halliday (2001 Vintage) says
Medium red-purple; the relatively light bouquet has a range of earthy/leafy/berry aromas, characters which come through on the light to medium-bodied palate, where they are joined by touches of mint and chocolate.

James Halliday (2000 Vintage) says
Medium red-purple; the clean but somewhat light bouquet has savoury /leafy notes to the fore, replaced by redcurrant/red berry fruit on entry to the mouth, before finishing a little sharpish.

James Halliday (1998 Vintage) says
Medium red-purple; very strong vanilla American oak thrusts its way through the bouquet; the wine has fair structure and balance, but the fruit is overwhelmed by that oak
