Cabernet Sauvignon 2014 – Black Market Deal #42388
- Textured, savoury
We all know that fine Coonawarra cabernet ages extremely well. Like a George Clooney or Brad Pitt ages well. We’ve had a couple of stunning back vintages from this producer, so when they offered us some 2014 vino, we did not hesitate. This is one of our go-to Coonawarra producers, making it such a no-brainer of a deal. It’s still plenty powerful, but age has softened the edges a touch to give it a bit more gravitas. Blackberry and mulberry, roasted nuts and black olive, all in perfect harmony. This is great stuff that will prove to be worthy of the A-list for years to come.

Coonawarra is renowned for its cabernet. To write off other varieties, though, would be simplistic. Some of the best wine from the region is shiraz, which is frequently overlooked in the search for the perfect cab sav. It's riesling is a surprise dark horse, too. Not to belittle Coonawarra cab either, but it's funny how often we get caught insisting that one variety is the best expression of a specific place, grown in a variable environment with so many factors at play. All we're saying is: don't miss the great wines that aren't the usual suspects. Coonawarra has quite a few amazing hands other than their trump card.
