Henschke Cyril Cabernet Sauvignon 2005 750ml, Eden Valley
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - 95 pts - The 2005 Cyril Henschke Cabernet Sauvignon contains 13% Merlot. It was sourced from the namesake vineyard with vines ranging in age from 23-49 years. It was aged for 21 months in 73% new French oak. A saturated purple color, the aromatics reveal lots of spice, cigar box, black currants and blackberry. Round, ripe, and extracted on the palate, this lush, flavorful Cabernet will continue to unwind for several more years and offers a drinking window extending from 2013 to 2025. - Dec 2009
James Halliday's Wine Companion - 95 pts - High quality wine; blackcurrant and cassis fruit leads both bouquet and palate; fine tannins and cedary oak add layers to the mouthfeel Date tasted 25 Feb 2008. Drink by 2025.
