Cabernet Sauvignon 2016 – Black Market Deal #39129
- Textured, savoury
“It doesn’t get more rock-solid than this.” – Beth, Wine Buyer
Complex, harmonious and elegant, this is a beautiful tribute to Coonawarra. Bestowed with 94pts by Halliday Wine Companion and made by one of the region’s most beloved wineries, it comes as no surprise that the identity of this distinctive red needs to be concealed - especially at this price. A symphony of juicy plum, blackcurrant, bay leaf and eucalypt combine with dense fruit cake and dark chocolate, leading to a plush and lingering crescendo.
Wines like this don’t come along often, ones that prolong time and inspire you to contemplate. The good news is that at 5 years old, this wine is drinking superbly. The great news is that it has at least a decade of prime drinking ahead of it.

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.
