Cabernets 2016 – Black Market Deal #40742
- Textured, savoury
Honestly folks, if there were any more medals around the neck of this bottle, it would collapse from the weight. Inspired by the blends of Bordeaux, this powerhouse Coonawarra producer has combined cabernet sauvignon, cabernet franc and merlot into something that has clearly delighted the wine critics and judges. It’s immensely complex, expressing an array of blue and black fruits along with violets, earthiness, herbs, chocolate and mint. There’s so much happening all the way through the finish, finally rounding out with fine-grained tannin and a touch of spice. Coonawarra doesn’t get much better than this.

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.
