Cabernet Sauvignon 2018 – Black Market Deal #42374
- Rich, full-bodied
You’ll need no intro to this very well-known Coonawarra name. Favourites for good reason, they hit the nail on the head when it comes to crafting beautiful cabernets which the region champions. All of their reds see a little bottle age, and we’re looking at 2.5 years for this stunner. That comes after a good 18 months in premium French oak barrels. You do the math, mofo. It’s rich and intense, with a glut of sophistication. Toasty spices and a touch of anise meet the menthol, blackcurrant core of this beauty. There’s a little touch of tobacco and earth which are starting to reveal themselves, promising a long and interesting life ahead. Superbly bold, a perfect reminder of Coonawarra’s charming force.

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.
