Overgaauw Cabernet Sauvignon 2000

John Platter - 4½ stars
Decanter Magazine - 4 stars
The 2000 vintage was exceptional for Cabernet Sauvignon on Overgaauw, producing healthy grapes with an abundance of fruit. This is a full-bodied wine with blackberry/mulberry aromas and hints of vanilla. The maturation in oak barrels adds to the complexity and future development of this wine. Probably one of our best Cabernet Sauvignons in the last decade. Big surrounding on the middle palate and soft grape tannins.
