Murdock Cabernet Sauvignon 2000

This wine is a fantastic example of what Australian cabernet sauvignon can be, and should be sought out.  An elegant aroma of black fruits.  A similar palate with at least 20 seconds of length, and excellent fruit.  This is performing at a cru classé level.  In its drinking prime.  97 points.

Hi Sean,

A note of support for your review.

Just had my second bottle this year, and agree with you wholeheartedly. If this was served blind as a middle-aged Bordeaux, I wouldn't blink an eye. I'd just be rapt to be drinking it.

Sad to say that's the end, my first ever 6 pack purchase, and I wish they could all wind up at this level of quality!

Thank you very much. I really think this is a cracking wine, and every bottle I've tried of it has been at the same extremely high standard. I only wish I had more too!
