Natalie's Score: 93/100
Minty coolness on the nose of this gorgeous Australian red wine is flooded by fleshy blackberry richness on the palate. A hedonist's wine to fill the senses. Full-bodied and smooth Cabernet Sauvignon. Finishes with dried herbs, tobacco leaves and cedar brush. Very satisfying, especially at this price. Pair with ribeye steak.
Cabernet Sauvignon food pairings: beef enchiladas, barbecued ribs in sauce, hamburger, hard cheese.

|Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:|
Dark garnet with inviting ripe cassis and raspberry aromas. Yummy raspberry and blackberry jam, cedar, dried herbs and mint on a very smooth, velvety palate with soft tannins and lingering finish. A great choice for a Cab lover.

|Rachelle O'Connor rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:|
Blackberry, mint, tobacco, and dried herbs on the full-bodied palate of this rich Australian Cabernet Sauvignon - a blend of grapes from two well-known distinct areas - Clare Valley and Coonawarra. Most enjoyable, smooth and lingers with a dark chocolate, cassis finish.

|Melanie Lloyd - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:|
This is a good earthy wine. First, there are aromas of autumn leaves, truffle and underwood. Then, a swirl in the glass reveals aromas of blackberry, eucalyptus and mint.
Blackberry and truffle notes follow through on the palate. This is a full bodied wine with fresh acidity and well structured tannins. Overall, this wine is nicely harmonized.

|Heather Wall - CS; WSET Advanced rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
Warming alcohol + gobs of fresh fruit + high acidity + evident tannins = tons of aging potential. Cab Sauv lovers will welcome the familiar graphite, black plum and cherry, bakers chocolate, blackcurrant leaf with lifts of menthol and eucalyptus. Good value and will reward in 5+ years. Crafted with Coonwara and Clare Valley grapes.

|Wakefield Jaraman (2014) is a cool-climate Cabernet Sauvignon from the Connawarra's Clare Valley. The wine has a rich blackberry nose with dried herbs and tobacco nose with much the same on the palate but with a dark chocolate finish and all wrapped in a fresh acidity. The wine was aged in French oak barrels giving the wine a whiff of smokiness about it. - Community Wine Reviews|
