Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve is sourced from a vineyard planted in 1972. It was aged in small French and American oak for 18 months. Opaque purple in color, it offers up classic Cabernet Sauvignon aromas of smoky oak, pencil lead, scorched earth, black currants, and blackberry liqueur. This leads to a sumptuous, savory, opulent, full-bodied wine which amazingly combines great power with elegance. Although there is plenty of structure and aging potential, the wine is seamless, sexy, and very enticing. Those able to delay gratification can safely cellar this great Cabernet for 10-20 years but it is hard to resist now. (JM)
The Noon’s winery is literally built into an old garage. It is like a rare gem where every facet is polished to a fine edge. The winery itself is small, consisting of a tasting room, a kitchen/lab, a barrel-filled aging room and another room that holds the huge blending tanks that were purchased back in the 1950’s by Drew Noon's father. If you stand at the winery door facing outwards, the block of vineyard immediately in front of you would contain just about the oldest vines on the property. The fruit for the Reserve Cabernet has been sourced from the same vineyard (Fruit Trees block in Langhorne Creek) since the first Reserve Cabernet in 1996.
