Katnook Odyssey Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

The 2013 Odyssey was the last that legendary winemaker Wayne Stehbens ("Stebbo") oversaw from start to finish, before his untimely passing in 2017. Vale.

Reserved, more toast and char than what one might expect from Coonawarra Cabernet. 

The body is supple, at odds to what seems a stern and reserved intro, generous - almost creamy - body. Blackcurrant is a dominant character, with firm and quite compact tannin. 

It's certainly something for the long haul, feeling tightly coiled and needing to unfurl. It's length is not denied, just at this present juncture yields to no one. 92+
