Fine, taut and pleasingly tannic Cabernet Sauvingon that, although it can't match the greatness of the best wines from Coonawarra and Margaret River, is one of the better examples form the Barossa. Lovely sweet fruit and impressive density with strong berry, spice and new leather flavours.
Tasted: Feb 2011 Closure: S'cap Average price: NZD $50 (~USD $42)
