Koonara Ambriels Gift Cabernet Sauvignon 2000

This wine, tasted blind, drank exceptionally well, if perhaps a little non-varietal (though I do find the shiraz/cabernet sauvignon distinction can sometimes blur in older Coonawarra wines).  An aroma of licorice and plums was met with a balanced palate with length, pleasant Penfolds like oak and balance.  A blend of 90% cabernet sauvignon, 5% merlot and 5% cabernet franc.  89 points.

Abv: 13.5%
