Sister’s Run ‘Bethlehem Block’ Barossa Cabernet 2011

Cabernet Sauvignon from Australia - South Australia
Review Date : 12-Feb-2015
Dark-hearted black-hued red with garnet on rim. This has an elegantly proportioned bouquet of soft blackcurrant fruit with some cassis and fragrant spice notes harmoniously melded with cedary oak, the aromatics beginning to soften and integrate with savoury secondary elements. Medium-full bodied, a softly concentrated core of blackcurrant, spice and cedar flavours unfold olive and minty detail on the front palate. The fruit is sweet and rich, and is balanced by fine-grained, powdery tannins that provide a smooth line. The palate grows in drying textures, with lacy acidity emerging and carrying through to a long finish with restrained blackcurrant, spice and cedar elements. This is a soft, dry-textured Cabernet Sauvignon with harmonious blackcurrant and cedary flavours. Match with roasted red meats and hard cheeses over the next 5-6+ years. Fruit from Carl Lindner’s ‘Bethlehem Block’, Gomersal, in the Barossa, fermented to 14.5% alc. 2385 dozen made. 18.0/20 Feb 2015 RRP $26.00
