Patrick T Home Block Cabernet Sauvignon 2006

This wine had a typical Coonawarra fragrance of earth and chocolate and also some oak.  The palate was similar with good length and acidity there too.  On day 2, this wine improved considerably, exhibiting an opulence and length on the palate.  A very good wine, which I would suggest decanting for some time before drinking in view of its substantial improvement with some oxidation.  89 points.
