Kaesler Barossa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

Cracka Rating

Cracka Review

Always love Barossa Cabernet Sauvignon and this is a lovely example with its layers of sweet dark fruits, big body in the mouth yet still shows a fair whack of class. Seriously drinkable.

Winemaker's Notes

Appearance: Strong primary core with ruby rim.

Nose: Up-front mulberry and cassis with cigar box notes.

Palate: Intense blackcurrant and liquorice with a soft silky front palate followed through by firm cedary tannins and mocha characters.

Expert Reviews

James Halliday (2008 Vintage) says
Good purple-red; made from 40-year-old estate plantings and matured in French oak for 18 months; there is no question the wine has clear varietal character and surprising finesse on the back-palate, which lengthens the finish, but I wish the wine was 14% alcohol, not 15%.

A rich, voluptuous medium- to full-bodied wine saying more about the region and the high quality vintage than the variety, but the French oak is well-handled.

James Halliday (2005 Vintage) says
Lots of blackcurrant fruit with some notes of earth and chocolate; solid, slightly rustic tannins; good French oak

Just too ripe, however flavoursome, entering into the valley of the dead fruit.

James Halliday (2003 Vintage) says
Developed colour; typical ripe fruit and chocolate nuances of Barossa Valley cabernet in many vintages; easy-going style; warm oak and soft tannins.

James Halliday (2002 Vintage) says
Solid wine; blackcurrant, earth and chocolate; powerful, persistent tannins, subtle oak; needs a decade.

James Halliday (2001 Vintage) says
Strong red-purple; voluminous blackcurrant and blackberry fruit, plus a touch of chocolate, drives the bouquet; a similarly powerful palate which is, however, not jammy; lingering tannins underwrite the structure.

James Halliday (2000 Vintage) says
Medium red-purple; light, fresh red berry/cassis fruit on the bouquet is reflected in the pleasant, elegant light to medium-bodied palate with its red fruit flavours and soft tannins. Not complex, simply enjoyable.
