Halliday Silver 94 points
At SnowDragon Wines we believe that a wine palate is as unique as a snowflake or a leafy sea dragon. These tasting notes describe the winemakers opinion, but we want you to ‘Taste the Dragon’ and decide for yourself.Aromas of cedar, dark fruits and vanilla lift easily from this elegant cabernet. Perfect harmony on the palate……
It is an exciting year when you deliver the grape harvest to your wine maker and he says “Stunning”.
This wine enjoyed a slow and gentle maturation for nearly 3 years on new French and American oak. Typical of SnowDragon wines the colour is deep crimson red. Elegant aromas of cedar and dark fruits are complemented by the vanilla and continue on the palate, with the dark fruits prominent and well-supported by the subtle oak flavours. The tannins are soft and fine-grained. All the flavours of this wine are harmonious and well-integrated.
It is a sophisticated, mature and complex wine. Kai’s Cabernet will continue to improve over the next 5 to 7 years. Halliday recommends drinking by 2033! So you can enjoy now but make sure to cellar a bottle or two.
We named our 2013 CabSav after our adventurous son, Kai, who enthusiastically explores all the good things in life.
