Coonawarra and Margaret River Cabernets
Reschke, Empyrean, Coonawarra 2004
Decanter average score: 17.75pts/20 (92/100pts)
Individual judges’ scores: RJ 17.5 PM 18 AR 17.5
Magnificent nose: fresh, fine, mellow, exotic spice and cigar box. A savoury, almost European balance of dark berry fruits underscored by notes of soy and balsam. Eight years old and still brooding away. Very persistent, with real richness and finesse and a soft, espresso finish.
