For those wanting big, bold Cabernets - this is a sure fire hit.
On the nose, lots of mocha, dark berries, vanilla, Christmas pudding. Very intense, it even smells "chewy".
Palate follows through as you'd expect, with huge mouthfeel and long, luscious finish. Lots of the same black berries and fruit compote, but not jammy. Smooth from start to finish, with hints of chocolate and fresh herbs. The tannins are big, but have mellowed after a decade in bottle as well. While clocking in at 15% ABV, it doesn't feel "hot".
Tasted September 2016.
Wolf Blass Grey Label Cabernet Sauvignon 2005, Langhorne Creek, Australia: Vintages Wine Panel: Deep ruby color; plummy, blackberry, chocolate aromas with a hint of vanilla; dry, full bodied, rich and smooth palate, full-bodied with ripe fruit flavors and big tannins on the finish. My note: The grand-daddy of the Wolf Blass line-up, this Cabernet Sauvignon towers with its rich dark fruit concentration, elegance and incredible length. Minty cool blackberries on the nose are followed by fleshy dark plums on the palate. What more could you ask? 470120 14% D 750 mL $34.95 Score: 94/100. May 7, 2009 Favorite Red Wine. Full Review
