Reviews and Ratings

This Cabernet Sauvignon from Coonawarra, South Australia is ripe cherry, crunchy blackberry and mint on the nose. Katnook Founder's Block (2014) is juicy, fresh and full-bodied. Katnook's first vintage was processed by winery Founder John Riccoch's in his woolshed in 1896. It's come a long way from that, though now part of Spain's Freixinet Group. Wayne Stehbens made his first vintage of Katnook in 1979. Coonawarra's second largest producer shows off the wine's elegance, complexity and expression of terrior with its savoury black olive finish. Pair with roast beef and all the fixings. - Community Wine Reviews

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.
