Jim Barry The Cover Drive Cabernet Sauvignon 2012
This wine is deep garnet in colour with high clarity. The nose is very aromatic, displaying primary characters of cassis and dark berries with subtle hints of dried herbs. The palate is medium bodied and generous, showing fine tannins, highlighted by flavours of blackcurrant, mint and morello cherries. As with previous releases of 'The Cover Drive', the wine displays harmonious balance and can be enjoyed now or will reward cellaring for 5 years.
Wine SpectatorFirm, upright and convincing, with juicy black fruit at the core and spicy, earthy notes adding interest to the finish. Has presence. Best from 2015 through 2018. 3,000 cases imported.
