Natalie's Score: 92/100
The Cabernet Sauvignon grapes for this robust Australian red wine were grown on the Coonawarra Terra Rossa "Cigar Strip" in the heart of the Coonawarra wine region in South Australia. This layer of rich, red stone over limestone produces the vibrant red and dark fruit character in this wine. Juicy, full-bodied and delicious! Fleshy ripe blackberry and black cherries lead on the nose of this robust red wine. Good layering and complexity. This is classic cool-climate Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon offering dark spice and racy acidity on the finish with deep and satisfying hint of mint refreshment. Cabernet Sauvignon thrives in Coonawarra with its limestone soils, cooling ocean winds and warm days. Straight-up pleasure! Try it with a juicy steak tonight.
Cabernet Sauvignon food pairings: hamburgers , pulled pork, venison burgers, hard cheese, prime rib.
Harmonious Hard Cheese Wine

|Wineboy rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
A full fruit driven wine where oak takes a back seat. Another person described the wine as somewhat Bordeaux-like and I agree in terms of power, but in terms of the level of fruit is it clearly new world. A pleasure to taste.
|Jim Barry The Cover Drive 2014 is a great value, medium-plus bodied and juicy Cabernet Sauvignon from the Coonawarra wine region. The grapes for this wine were grown on the Coonawarra Terra Rossa "Cigar Strip" in the heart of the region. Lots of ripe, juicy blackberries, black cherries and cedar spice flavours on the palate with a hint of mint. Drink now and for the next eight years. - Community Wine Reviews|
