2012 Barrel 88 Cabernet Sauvignon
Just like the Barrel 88 Shiraz the Barrel 88 Cabernet Sauvignon is a reflection of the two brilliant viticultural regions, the Barossa and McLaren Vale. These two regions are both similar and different at the same time, with the Barossa providing the richness and sweetness, while McLaren Vale provides the spice and elegance. There is a medium to full bodied palate with blackcurrant, plum and spice on the nose and palate. There is quite pronounced tannin, which is typical for premium Cabernet Sauvignon grapes due to small berries and low crops. hence this wine will age age well. There is oak nuances of spice and pencil shavings due to it being matured in French oak and the length is good and long.
