salitage pemberton cabernet 2005 scores 94 from halliday

Salitage Pemberton Cabernet 2005 from leading WA winery scored 94 points from influential wine writer James Halliday in his recently released Australian Wine Companion 2010.

He writes:

Bright colour; elegant, light-bodied style with Bordeaux overtones; it is deceptive, for the sweet red berry fruits are not immediately obvious, but come up on retasting; the tannins are gossamer fine, the finish long. Cabernet Sauvignon/Merlot/Petit Verdot/Cabernet.  94 points James Halliday.

Its more-ish savoury characters remind me of Bordeaux.   05 was a great season in Pemberton and the Salitage Pemberton Cabernet 2005 is drinking beautifully now but will cellar till 2015.
