"Deep red. Vibrant aromas of fresh redcurrant, cherry skin and pungent flowers, with suggestions of cigar box and vanilla in the background. Juicy and penetrating, offering spice-tinged flavors of bitter cherry and raspberry that deepen and become sweeter on the back half. Opens slowly on the subtly tannic finish, with the red fruit note lingering."

Product Description:

"Make NO mistake about it - Mohawk Cabernet Sauvignon is a pedigreed, classic McLaren Vale estate red. This wine was originally called 'Tomahawk,' though one unnamed winery in Napa Valley had a vineyard designate called the 'Tomahawk Block' and a few cease and desist letters later, we have 'Mohawk.'

'Mohawk' (for once), doesn't refer to anything punk rock driven..that's reserved for the Adelaide Plains' 'Raw Power.' Instead this is a glimpse into the life of a desperate, broke group of young winemakers that would do ANYTHING, sans cash, to get a chance at these great vineyards in the Vale. They affectionately became known as 'savages' due to their treatment of the ho'hum commercial wine industry and that conglomerates' treatment of some great vines.

There are beautiful leafy Cabernet (a good things) aromas with notes of blackberry and and cedar, fine soft tannins on palate with the sweet blackberry fruits backing them up. Lovely cedary oak to bring it all together. There is more richness and drive to this wine than ever before. A HUGE step up from previous vintages." - Importer
