Hard at work here but sincerely I like this better than...a lot of cabs I’ve tried and at 30 bucks it is VALUE. Ripeness of fruit and a whiff of saline and stone. Margaret River gem. There is a certain syrup-y nature to the Aussie cabs I’ve been trying but they are lightened by acid and flavor. For the person who is thinking What Identifiable Things Am I Gonna Taste?: raspberries that have been turned to syrup and salted, Black and red currant, a whiff of licorice and blackberry pie that is not too sweet.

Blue fruit, cassis, plum, violets, bay leaf and fleck of sweet oak. But varietal is the fore. Lovely length shown on the palate, with an ever present tannin profile but nothing out of place. Feels composed and drinks well now but good for the cellar too.

Soft tannins, fruity, but not overpowering. Like it a lot.

Harsh and tannic Cabernet Sauvignon. Not worth the price. Has a nice fruity nose but the taste is too astringent.

Amazing blackberry, green pepper and black leathery notes. Maybe too subtle even on that great burger

Great well balanced cab/sav. Strong raspberry notes with a sweet body.

Better with more time in bottle. Lots of complexity. Dry and rusty to start and then deep plums. When on holiday have to drink what you can buy
