Two Hands Aphrodite Cabernet Sauvignon 2005
|Region||Australia, South Australia, Barossa Valley|
The 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon "Aphrodite" presents a nose of toasty oak, smoke, pencil lead, black currants, and licorice. Full-bodied and layered, it is structured for extended cellaring. The tannins are present but well-concealed and there is more than ample fruit for balance. Give this big Cabernet 10-12 years in the cellar and drink it through 2035.
Dense, ripe and plush, with savory sage and cilantro grace notes adding interest to the ripe cherry and prune flavors, picking up sweet spice character as the finish sails on smoothly. Tannins are present, but well-submerged, and this persists impressively. Cabernet Sauvignon.
