Vavasour Awatere Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

Expert Reviews

James Halliday (1996 Vintage) says
The colour is exceptionally deep for Marlborough Cabernet Sauvignon; the bouquet is powerful, with strident leafy cabernet varietal fruit, the palate likewise powerful and concentrated, all in the green-forest spectrum, but does have structure. Plum and cassis are to be found on the back label.

Michael Cooper (1996 Vintage) says
The leafy nose of the 1996 vintage is typical of very cool-climate Cabernet Sauvignon. The colour is deep and bright; the palate offers strong cassis/spice flavours with a herbal thread. French oak-matured for 16 months, it's an impressively concentrated Marlborough wine with firm, chewy tannins and should reward further cellaring.
