Price Drop: Cabernet Sauvignon 2017 – Black Market Deal #43967
- Rich, full-bodied
- Barossa Valley
We really feel you’ll be very chuffed when this wine arrives at your doorstep and the producer’s name is revealed. Previous deals from this winery have driven our mofo members to rapturous delight and left them wanting even more. This Barossa cabernet with plenty of years already under its belt scored a classy 94 points from Wine Orbit and at the discount we’re offering, it’s none other than an absolute steal! Punchy warm climate aromatics of dried herbs, blackberry and game give way to a rich and round palate of cassis and exotic smoky oak. Its bottle age means this 2017 is ready to enjoy developed characteristics now but, by all means, lie it down longer and continue its journey to ultimate maturity.
What is a Black Market deal?
Black Market deals are only made possible if we don’t reveal the maker’s brand on site. The wines are the genuine article – absolutely no cleanskins or fake brands, just dangerously good value. You won’t find out what it is until it hits your doorstep, but you won’t regret it. Just keep it on the down low.
It’s cool, we get it, you want to know absolutely everything about this wine. Well here you go, go nuts.

'Barossa Valley'. This is Australia's key wine brand overseas, in the US especially. It's our riposte to 'Champagne', 'Scotch' and 'Barolo'. My mind conjures these images, in this order: Shiraz, Penfolds wine, Maggie Beer condiments. All of which can GET - IN - MY - BELLY! But there is so much more to the Barossa than first glance. There are fringe (and not so fringe) winemakers actively working to classify the valley's subregions, and this is a very worthy cause. From Moppa to Seppeltsfield to Marananga there's a lot of variation, and the styles produced can vary immensely. This is the next step in the vision of this region (which, let's face it, is a baby in the scheme of things), as it gets acquainted with its strengths, weaknesses and future opportunities.It's a region that's not sorry to produce the big, fruit-driven wine styles that make it so popular. So drink to the future of the Barossa, because it's as bright as any other region on the world stage.
