Feathertop Cabernet Sauvignon

Expert Reviews

Jeremy Oliver (2008 Vintage) says
Elegant, dusty and quite European in style, with a cedary, faintly jammy bouquet of red and black berries backed by a note of briar and a hint of polished leather. Supple and fine-grained, its pristine, measured expression of dark fruits and cedary oak finishes with a suggestion of dried herbs aril a hint of sappiness. It's likely to become quite cigarboxy as it ages.

Simultaneously baked and minty, with a sweet, confectionery presence of blueberries and raspberry confiture backed by raisins and smoky, meaty aspects. It's actually rather grenache-like, but thins out towards a hollow finish.

Jeremy Oliver (2005 Vintage) says
Very elegant, fine-grained and restrained, this delightfully balanced and structured cabernet is beginning to develop a smoky, gamy and cedary bouquet and some complex forest floor-like character. It's scented with violets, undergrowth and restrained berry fruit and its sweet, supple but tightly controlled palate marries reserved fruit with chocolate/cedar oak and a gravelly spine of fine, drying tannin.

Jeremy Oliver (2004 Vintage) says
Elegant, floral and savoury, this fine-grained and loose-knit cabernet marries small dark berry and plum-like fruit with cedar, vanilla and dark chocolate oak influences. It's dusty and restrained, with a lingering core of dark fruit.

James Halliday (2003 Vintage) says
Particularly good hue; gently sweet cassis, blackcurrant and even a touch of raspberry fruit; fine, savoury tannins and oak an excellent counterbalance.

Jeremy Oliver (2003 Vintage) says
Rather cooked and raw, this smooth but slightly dehydrated cabernet has a closed bouquet of small black and red berries over cedar/vanilla oak and herbal undertones. It's rather jammy, with a moderately long palate whose initially sweet flavours of black and red berries dries out towards a currant-like and raisined finish backed by suggestions of dried herbs. Lacks freshness and brightness.

Jeremy Oliver (2002 Vintage) says
A firm, powdery cabernet whose earthy aromas of cassis, plums and dried herbs overlie some slightly meaty oak. Fine-grained and fleshy, it presents a moderately long palate whose bright flavours of plums, cassis and cranberries is framed by slightly gritty tannin. Finishes with herbal undertones.
