Natalie's Score: 90/100

Juicy, full-bodied, rich and delicious on the palate. This robust red wine at a great price offers tremendous value and bang for your buck. Attractive aromas of mint and blackberry on the nose. It finishes nicely with black plum, espresso and cloves. Black in hue with aromas to match. Dark fruit, tar and smoky oak. Pair with juicy hamburgers.

Cabernet Sauvignon food pairings: hearty meat dishes, hard cheese, juicy rare steak, barbecued ribs in sauce, hamburger.

Reviews and Ratings

Rachelle O'Connor rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

A very enjoyable Cabernet Sauvignon from a great vintage and a well known, consistent producer. This full bodied red offers intense flavors of dark fruit, fresh herbs, mint, and a hint of smoke. Decanting recommended. Great with grilled Angus burgers on the BBQ.
Perry rated this wine as 91/100
Stephen Andrews reviewed this wine as follows:

Tasted Jan. 7, 2018. Colour, dark red, legs thick and slow. Aromas and flavours of, eucalyptus, dried herbs, pencil lead, prune. Taste dry, mouthwatering plus, fine grain tannin, dried fruit. Finishes with some mouthwatering not much flavour on the back. Ok the wine was opened the day before. It displayed more brightness and a red pepper fruit aroma. Recommend drinking this wine when it is opened and aerated. I think I would like to drink this wine with a char grilled burger and fries. Or beef dishes maybe grilled lamb chops. Good value for price.
Juicy, full-bodied, rich and delicious this Cabernet Sauvignon is blueberry fruit and vanilla flavours on the palate and is a robust red wine at a great price offers tremendous value and bang for your buck. Pair with a juicy steak or cellar for three years. - Community Wine Reviews
