Critics Review: Award winning Coonawarra Cabernet
Our The Head Honcho, Coonawarra Cab 2012 vintage was awarded:
• 95 points, James Halliday “Even more concentrated and focused than the Family Reserve Ambriel’s Gift, with more blackcurrant fruit and more tannins.”
• 4.5 Stars, Winestate Magazine “Intense black fruit aromas with a sweet oak lift. The palate is dark and closed at the moment with very pure varietal fruit characters and excellent tannin definition.”

Top of the class

I previously purchased a 2012 Head Honcho and shared it recently with friends and wow. I had to by another. Look forward some time in the future to enjoying the 2015.

The best of Koonara

Extraordinary wine. As good as some of the best i have had. Keeping rest for special occasions.

Decades ahead of it

It doesn’t seem fair to review this wine at such a young age, when it clearly has decades ahead of it. Blackberry fruit with secondary blueberry flavours. Cool mint on the front of the palate, building to a complex savoury profile on the mid-palate, and a nicely rounded finish on the back palate. Fine and dusty tannins. The oak still playing a dominant role, with enough acidity to carry it though many years. Rated the 2012 Vintage.

Smooth, lingering well balanced

Oh that velvet-clad sup. Heavyweight bottle! Such an entrance for this flagship $100 Coonawarra Cab. It's made from single vineyard, low crop, high intensity fruit that's aged in some of the most expensive French oak for 24 mths. Only 3 barrels and 880 bottles made the cut. It's young, at 4 yrs. And was on the more elegant end of the Coonawarra spectrum. Lots of concentrated blackberries, with glimpses of secondary characters. There's a smooth, lingering well balanced palate. Huge potential. 93.5/100 (3.9). Rated 2012 Vintage.
