Overgaauw Cabernet Sauvignon 2004

4½ John Platter Wine Guide 2007
The deep-colour and intensity draws you in to this complex wine with its dark plum core and intriguing layers of roasted spice, meat-extract and lead pencil minerality. Although it is already accessible, the firm but ripe tannins give it the structure for 7 to 15 years cellaring, when it will reach its full potential.
