South Australia Cabernet Sauvignon

Peter Lehmann

Mentor Barossa Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2006

Dusty, mint, tomato leaf and vanilla aromas. On the medium bodied palate with this Bordeaux blend which also adds Shiraz and Malbec there are black currant and savoury flavours. Finishes with some astringency. I have always thought the Barossa Valley is best suited to Shiraz personally although there are some historic blocks of Cabernet like Penfolds Block 42 which can produce some amazing Cabernet from ancient vines in the Barossa. — 2 days ago

Jacob's Creek/Orlando

Double Barrel Cabernet Sauvignon

Delectable and smooth. Well balanced tannins. Oak, leather and blueberries. Excellent pairing with steak dinner. Seems to gain some unique flavor note from the Irish whiskey barrels that I can’t quite place. We drank it well decanted, which may contribute to the smoothness. — 2 days ago

Grange Hermitage Bin 95 Shiraz Cabernet Sauvignon 1996

September 2019 TWG tasting through a Grange vertical. Given the age range, most were coming into a sweet spot, while the youngest of the bunch was still a baby a decade in. All excellent examples of the label, with the best in my mind more akin to a top-tier St. Joseph with violet, leather, and heavy blue/black fruit. — 5 months ago

Bin 407 Cabernet Sauvignon 1996

Halliday says at its best 13 years ago? But wow, still ruby red and fresh, full of life. Opened dry and dusty but after an hour of decanting opened up beautifully. Rustic, spicy, unctuous with fine dusty tannins. So enjoying it. — a day ago
