Jaraman 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon
Origin: Coonawarra & Clare Valley, Australia
Varietal: cabernet sauvignon
Producer's Notes: A celebration of regional characteristics, this wine is a fusion of two exceptional parcels of fruit from two iconic wine regions. Generous ripe fruit flacours of the Clare Valley are balanced with elegant, fine tannins, lifted mint character and velvety finish of the Coonawarra. Ripe flavours of blackcurrant and cassis with subtle French oak characters of cedar and spice. A well-balanced wine across the palate with fine, elegant tannins.
Dull violet color. Aromas and flavors of boysenberry preserves and wild mint with a velvety, vibrant, dry medium-full body and a tingling, medium-length finish conveying notes of blackberry jam, wildberry skittles, thyme, and mixed peppercorns with chewy, fruit tannins and light oak flavor. A true-to-form jammy Coonawarra Cab brimming with wild berry notes.
Score - 93
