A dense and classy red from Australia’s most famous Cabernet Sauvignon region at a very competitive price. The wine is showing the benefit of bottle age with a silkier texture than when it was first released. Strongly varietal and very stylish red that offers top value.
Tasted: Jun 2008 Closure: S'cap Average price: NZD $23 (~USD $20)
