2002 Tahbilk Estate Cabernet Sauvignon
Wine Rating 
 
92

Tahbilk are a consistent performer given time in the cellar, with the 2002 Estate Cabernet no different.

The wine itself is a slightly browning red with the nose a leathery expression of blackberry fruits that's given a hint of earth and menthol.

The palate has good depth with primary dark fruits getting some secondary characters and drying tannins framing the wine well. The finish is a little more savoury and austere with firm acid and oak supporting leathery blackberry flavours.

Drinking in it's prime now, but will continue to live for the next 5 - 10
