The 2008 Howard Park Abercrombie Cabernet Sauvignon is opaque red with a purple rim. The nose is filled with blackberry, cedar, tomato leaf, dusty bitumen road and chocolate representing each distinctive component of the harmonious Great Southern and Margaret River blend. On the palate, the Great Southern fruit parcels provide the structural backbone and line of the wine while the Margaret River component lifts the aromatics adding flesh and complexity. The palate starts with a rush of plush red berry fruit and reaches its zenith with damp earth and forest floor complexity balanced by ultrafine powdery and layered tannins. The finish displays the class of the selected vineyards with long fruit and structural elements balanced by supporting mocha oak.
Warm and primary bright fruit notes of black currant and mulberry with a perfumed lift of sweet mint, cocoa and freshly rubbed herbs. Opulent fruit weight and supple fruit tannins deftly cradled by fine oak flavour and tannins. A mineral and chalky structure enhances palate texture and length.
