The 2008 Barlow Estate Cabernet Sauvignon has a tremendous richness that is a result of the fruit's ripeness and a solid tannin structure that will allow it to mature and soften nicely over time. Dark and decadent, the palate has a sweet rum raisin quality which is layered between crushed blackberries, black currant interwoven with tobacco leaf, smoke, and forest floor. A good showing of balance and complexity makes this wine accessible now. The aroma captures the essence of our property with black cherry, dark chocolate and just a hint of French vanilla.
