Stanley Lambert 2005 Silent Partner Cabernet Sauvignon


									    Stanley Lambert 2005 Silent Partner Cabernet Sauvignon

About this wine

The Silent Partner was named after W.R. Sauey
who helped Jim Lambert get his start in
business. While never silent, his mentorship
helped Jim build a successful publicly listed
company in the USA that allowed him to retire
into the wonderful life of the Australian wine

Silent Partner, has a softness unusual to
Cabernet. Best discribed as Plumy with light
Blueberry flavours and a sweet Minty character
with soft velvety tanins. Cabernet Sauvignon,
due to it's small berry size can often be rather
astringent in tanin and have characters
described as Leafy, Greenness, Stalky and
Minty. Cabernet Sauvignon from the Long Gully
Vineyard region in the Barossa is low yielding
with intense fruit flavours. Aged in fine
grained American Oak Hogshead for 18 months,
this wine is firm and elegant with a rich finish.
Best allowed to breathe after opening.

For the astute investor, this wine will provide dividends with patient cellaring for at least 10 years, or
reward those looking for a positive return now.
