WINEMAKER TASTING NOTES: Casella 1919 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon: Made from grapes sourced from the Limestone Coast, South Australia (Wrattonbully/Coonawarra), this wine has an intense deep crimson colour and a complex aroma showing layers of fruit cake, red currants and toasted spice from the oak barrels. Intense and rich flavours of red berries and liquorice fill the mouth and the well-integrated oak brings hints of dark chocolate and coffee. Fine tannins, an elegant structure and a long-lasting finish allow the flavours of this wine to do the talking.
