Katnook Estate 2005 Odyssey Cabernet Sauvignon

Looking for a Christmas present for a wine lover? You won't go far wrong with this serious Coonawarra cabernet that has all the elements in place. There are lashings of sweet berry fruit and minty characters, plenty of oak (although nicely in balance), soft tannins and subtle hints of spice. This is a very smooth wine, complex and long on the palate, that is drinking well in its youth but will probably develop for a decade or more. I wouldn't mind a few bottles of this in the cellar. $95.
