Wine tasting note: 1996 Elderton Cabernet Sauvignon

1996 Elderton Cabernet Sauvignon

1st Apr 1999 GBP12 Australia Table Red

[Tasted Blind]
Even ruby red, gradually fading to pink rim - young and fairly light.
Open, perfumed nose of cassis and integrated charred oak - attractive but light.
Medium to full bodied with lots of spice, sweet berry fruit, fresh acidity and ripe tannins.
Good finish with almond and oak flavours coming through.
[Guess: new world cabernet or syrah, french oak]
