An Olfactory Repertoire

KATNOOK ESTATE'S Founder's Block Cabernet Sauvignon presents exceptional value [£8.99, Oddbins - 20P/C off six].
From estate fruit tended within Australia's applauded iron ore coloured coonawarra belt (which covers just 15km by 2km), the '04 delivers a dazzling performance... A being of generous, but not blaring flavour amplification, with an olfactory repertoire of fresh mint flavoured Chocolatessen's chocolate, brittle luxury coffee biscuit crumbled into vanilla ice cream, and unlit cigarillo. In the mouth, capsicum (chilli infused chocolate in fact), dark berries and oak tannins develop with infectious enthusiasm.
A perfect way to brighten a wearily wet day.
