Parri Estate McLaren Vale Cabernet Sauvignon

Cracka Rating

Cracka Review

Big! 2008 was a warm vintage in the Vale and it's produced a big wine here - big, bold and super rich fruit flavours a go-go. Heartiness, dry tannins, and no shortage of punch.

Winemaker's Notes

The 2008 Parri Estate Cabernet Sauvignon is a deep black colour. It displays aromas and flavours of black currants, plums, fruit cake, mocha and spice with a hint of herbaceous character typical of the variety. A fruit dominant style with a round and full palate, firm tannins and great length that really over delivers. A suitable partner to a variety of richly flavoured foods such as red meats and aged cheeses. Drinking well now this wine will benefit from cellaring for up to 8 years.

WINESTATE (2008 Vintage) says
Subtle, minty, berry bouquet and light, tight, blackberry palate. Some alcohol heat.

Quite concentrated with good flavor, plenty of cedar and some red berry fruits

James Halliday (2005 Vintage) says
Strongly regional, leading in with bitter chocolate before quite powerful blackcurrant fruit makes its presence felt; lots of structure and potential.
