Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon 2020

Have you grabbed your $60 wine subscription sampler from Wine Selectors yet?

This pack includes 12 mini bottles of Aussie wine. Head to the blog to read all about it: travellingcorkscrew.com.au/blog/wine-subscription-sampler/

This Leconfield 2020 Cab Sauv came in the sample pack I was sent and it went down a treat! Definitely a nice taster.

In the glass it’s a juicy plum red colour. On the nose it’s rather earthy/forest like alongside having notes of blackberries, and vanilla oak. On the palate it’s fruity and fresh with plentiful black cherries and berry flavours. Nice full flavour without being overpowering. Balanced and delish!

All opinions are my own. Drink what you enjoy!

Burst of berries and a hint of black pepper in the end. Still a bit young. — 6 days ago

Keyneton Euphonium Barossa Shiraz Blend 2005

Browning in the rim.
Warm chestnuts, sticky-date-pudding, kirsch, hoisin, cinnamon and orangepeel.
Still lovely, but on the downslope.

Moss Wood

Moss Wood Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2005

A whiff of oak initially. Minty, herbaceous, plum and mulberry. The assertive tannins in its youth are resolving but still 5 to 10 years in front of it in a cool cellar. Balanced, elegant yet medium plus bodied at the same time. The quintessential Margaret River Cabernet. Have been a long time fan of Moss Wood and in summary, over the years, not as herbal as usual with more cassis and black currant in this excellent vintage. — 8 days ago

Pertaringa Cabernet Sauvignon 2019

Nice Cab with a light thiner texture with a complex taste. Interesting that mint is one of the undertones. Good hot summer dray red wine — 11 days ago

Nugan Estate

Third Generation Cabernet Sauvignon 2020

$56 on the wine list. $30 Happy Hour price. It will be interesting to find it in the retail program. An ok wine, we like the Penfolds cheap product a bit better. — 18 days ago

At $12 I’m throughly impressed with this. Sandalwood nose eases into a velvety mid palate of cherries, and a wisp of cinnamon. Acidity is in the background and overall finishes moderately sweet. If you see it, try it. — 15 days ago

Penfolds

Bin 707 Cabernet Sauvignon 1996

A big full bodied red as you would expect given the style and the vintage. Plum, black currant, mocha, liquorice and the remnants of too much American oak in its youth but now settling down and coming together at 26 years of age. At least another 10 years future in it I would say. After a couple of hours in the decanter a very good Cabernet but not particularly identifiable as Coonawarra, although rereading the label the grapes were sourced from a few districts in South Australia. Very Penfolds in style. See 2 previous Delectable notes going back a few years. — 21 days ago

Very interesting to read your note as I have a last bottle of similar vintage hanging out in the cellar. Maybe better for me to trade/sell it for something I'll find more interest in.

I guess you have to like the style of big ripe fruit and lashings of American oak. It does settle down at this age though and I haven’t tried the recent vintages of 707 but I doubt the style has changed much if at all. I notice the current vintage of 2019 is selling for $650 on Penfolds Australian website so if you chose to sell your 1996 you should get good money for it.

Just checked, my bottle is 1999, but seems that your guidance will still hold true.
