92 Points - Lisa Perrotti-Brown (robertparker.com)

“Deep garnet-brick in color, the 2002 Katnook Estate Cabernet Sauvignon shows a wonderfully evolved nose with pronounced earthy and gamey notes allied to a core of creme de cassis, dried mint and a touch of smoked meat. Medium to full-bodied, it has a rich, concentrated palate marked by just a slight herbal lift, crisp acid and medium to firm, grainy tannins. It finishes long.”

Region

Situated in the Limestone Coast zine of South Australia, the Coonawarra wine region is synonymous with Cabernet Sauvignon; so much so that success with other grape varieties is often overlooked. It is relatively new to wine-making - from 1890 to 1945 most of the wine was distilled into brandy - but today the famous terra rossa (or red soils) on which all the early vineyards were planted produce predominantly Cabernet Sauvignon wines, full of plum and blackcurrant fruit.
