Ada River Heathcote Cabernet Sauvignon 2009


There's an irresistible velvet glove-like appeal that leads to an elusive x-factor that can only come with age.

This is an 9 year old Heathcote Cabernet drinking at its peak.  It's from a producer called Ada River and despite the age, this wine is still rather fruit driven and not overly savoury.  It's medium bodied and has velvet-like tannins and while the fruit is dark and concentrated, it's certainly not dominant.  Overall, there's an irresistible velvet glove-like appeal to this wine and if you purchase a dozen, you probably have 12 months or so to enjoy this wine in this fantastic stage.  And with all due respect, I think this is how the wine maker would have liked this wine to be drunk - mature, yet still showing fruit.
