South Australia Cabernet Sauvignon

Penley Estate

Phoenix Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

The nose is full of text book Cabernet descriptors like Bay Leaf, Geranium and Blackcurrant which follow through on the medium bodied palate with spicy berry flavours. Very very good QPR at $17.95 AUD per bottle. One of the 1001 wines surprisingly but I guess it’s a good thing that all the wines in that book don’t have to be expensive. — 6 days ago

Wynns Coonawarra Estate

Black Label Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

The Annual Wynnsday releases with winemaker Sue Hodder. This is the 62nd vintage of the Black Label - quite a heritage. This is a more elegant style from the cooler 2017 vintage following the warm 2016. There are black currant Cabernet aromas with Coonawarra mint in abundance. Sue says she likes to drink Black Label at around 8 to 12 years of age. I have had much older examples in pristine condition though. — a month ago

Vintage Release Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

Delectable: This is a new Cuvée for Wynns for this year called O’Deas Vineyard Red Blend. Only a small vineyard of 3.13 hectares planted with Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Malbec. The warmer 2016 vintage enabled Wynns to make a field blend of the 4 varieties. I had brief notes - Mulberry, dusty Bordeaux blend still with the Coonawarra mint in evidence. Perfect balance - you could drink this now or cellar for 20 years. — a month ago

Woodlands

Margaret Woodlands Vineyard Red Blend 2010

Mid to deep Ruby. Black currant and Margaret River herbaceous notes. Medium weight with medium plus intensity. Amazing quality for this Woodlands 2nd wine. Many Margaret River producers would be happy to have this as their No. 1 wine. From another good year in the Margaret River - will go on for at least another 5 to 10 years. — 11 days ago

Clonakilla

Ballinderry Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2009

Dense crimson in colour. Unmistakably Cabernet on the nose of Medium minus intensity. Leafy notes with a touch of tobacco. On the palate medium bodied - solid without a lot of nuance. A continental Cabernet, where I think, maritime conditions suit Cabernet the best with the odd exception. — 19 days ago

John Riddoch Limited Release Cabernet Sauvignon

Last years superlative 2015 ( the best yet Sue Hodder said) will be a hard act to follow although Andrew Caillard MW, the Bordeaux expert at Langtons has already given it 💯 points. Very youthful deep crimson with purple rim. The nose and palate are tight, brooding and latent with so much to give. Dark berry fruits on the full bodied palate. Beautifully made with a long life of up to 30 Years ahead of it. A Tour de Force. Don’t touch the first one for 5 and preferably 10 years. — a month ago

Bin 407 Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

Following the Cuttings... Less jammy fruit, but more regal. Pronounced peppermint in the background. Like the previous cab, blue-black fruits.on the nose and palate. Some spices definitely including clove. What's different is that the tannins are still bold (yes it's 2 years younger) but years equal, this will outlast. Both great wines but this gets the plus mark tonight.

Koonunga Hill Shiraz Cabernet 2016

Ripe plums and berries with an offdry entrance, rich and dense, spice notes of vanilla and medium tannins. One of my favorite wines and definitely a perfect pairing for any barbecue! My respects! — 16 days ago
