The Cover Drive Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

Nose of red currant, plum, meat, eucalyptus, and smoke. Much the same on the palate. Quite a lot of blackberry and sour plum acidity, especially for this varietal. Pretty soft tannin and a bit of alcohol heat on the finish. I'm digging these ripe bit elegant "New Australia" wines. — a day ago

Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2016

What a surprise this was. Full bodied dark red cherry and blue berry fruit, very spicy and a fantastic dry edge to the finish with great complexity. I just grabbed it for a nothing special every Wednesday evening wine and than this came out if the bottle. Awesome wine! — a month ago

Phoenix Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon

Yummy. Can't wait to try again...or is it a sugar high?

Still like this wine, however on retasting it I am concerned with a tendency toward grape candy flavors. High sugar notes.

The Tally Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2008

As per previous notes. Dense crimson in colour. Cedar, blackberry and geranium. To borrow HH’s phrase “effortless style”. Demonstrates why Coonawarra’s red dirt is marvellous for Cabernet. 96% Cabernet 4% Petit Verdot. The Tally is the top Cuvée from Balnaves. Rich, medium to full bodied. — a month ago

Tasted this right after a very fine left bank and the nose was very similar. Palate ended up being very American oak centric. Good value but didn’t expect much for nine dollars at Costco. — a month ago
