Cabernet Sauvignon 2019 – Black Market Deal #38616
- Textured, savoury
Age-worthy, award-winning Coonawarra cabernet for under $15? Is this for real? Yes indeed it is and you’d be right to think that deals don’t get much better than this!
This wine truely shows the best of what the famed region has to offer, as it walks the tightrope between power and elegance with perfect poise. There are ripe dark fruits of plum and cassis, wrapped up in fine tannins and complimented by notes of toasty oak. It is intense, but also wonderfully balanced. We don’t need to say much about the ageing potential of cabernet with all that structure and tannin, but we will say that you’ll be glad it’s coming as a dozen.
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.
“Everything about this wine screams classic, familiar, pleasing Coonawarra cabernet, its aromatics lifted with cassis and mint chocolate, reverbing as you drink with a full-bodied backbone holding everything in place. Vibrant, dark berry fruit flavours, deftly supported by good oak without dominating, and discernible yet mild tannins to finish. Very tidily delivered for a terrific Coonawarra cabernet experience for all comers.”
It’s cool, we get it, you want to know absolutely everything about this wine. Well here you go, go nuts.

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.
