Fox Creek Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2004, McLaren Vale
Deep ruby and almost tar-like at the rim. Mature. Intense aromas of cassis following through with mocha & chocolate, rum raisin with ripe fruit to the palate gives it an exciting length. Decant in advance and enjoy. Does not taste like a 15 year-old wine. Not 'foxy' at all.
James Halliday awarded the wine 94 Points writes, ‘Fox Creek Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2004 gives a potent mix of blackcurrant, blackberry and bitter chocolate supported by ripe tannins and controlled oak.'
