Australia — South Australia • $19.95 • 88.5/100

This is a big, robust Cabernet, with no pretentions towards cooler climate elegance. The wine is deep ruby- red, and densely opaque. Very ripe blueberry, blackberry, black currant and plum fruit are complemented by notes of licorice, spice and cedary resin. Alcohol is a little warm (though constrained), tannins are fine but persistent, and the rich, ripe fruit takes on a slightly cooked component, although it remains appealing and juicy. A great value for fans of lush, ripe Aussie reds. • Tasted 2017-04-01 • LCBO id#58099 • Find it at your nearest LCBOFREE HOUSE ONTARIO WINE & SPIRITS (Agent)
