Domaine A Cabernet 2001

At last, I got to taste a wine from Domaine A in Tasmania.  This surprisingly darkly coloured wine had an aroma of dark fruits with a touch of "barnyard" and mint.  The palate had nice length, with good structure, tannins and acidity.  This is a very good wine, and really surprised me with its high quality, given the coldish climate (in a cabernet sauvignon ripening sense) that it originates from.  An excellent wine.  90 points.
