94 points James Halliday Wine Companion 2012

PJ’s Cabernet Sauvignon 2009 is a nicely articulated Cabernet. Bright, deep colour exuding rich pleasant fruit aromas. Picked to capture the fruity flavours and restraining the alcohol.

The palate is assuaged by the blackcurrant fruit which have been integrated with the French Oak.This has provided some black olive and cedar characters that add to the enjoyment of this medium bodied wine.

Tasting Notes

Viticulture

2009 was a good growing season which allowed the grapes to ripen early. The vines had minimal irrigation and the crop levels were low to ensure the vines produced a balanced crop of grapes.

Winemaking

This wine was made as a small batch (10 tonne) with a warm ferment over 7 days, before being pressed off skins into a combination of 100% French Oak. Remaining in oak for 15 months maturation, gaining the layered complexity now evident in the finished wine.
