Katnook Estate

Roger Jones

Tasting: Coonawarra & Margaret River Cabernet Sauvignon

Meaty nose, very savoury if somewhat tart on palate like sour blackberries off a bush. Some meaty flavours and richness coming through. Needs time.

Pierre Mansour

Tasting: Coonawarra & Margaret River Cabernet Sauvignon

Deep. Spicy, savoury, slightly herbaceous nose. Lifted. Round, fleshy, succulent fruit, fine tannins, modest weight & stylish. Medium length.

Anthony Rose

Tasting: Coonawarra & Margaret River Cabernet Sauvignon

Deep youthful ruby, quite blackcurranty on the nose with some spicy oak undertones, good bright savoury acidity and sub-threshhold oak playing their part in the structure of a well put together, nicely balanced red with accessible, juicy qualities.
