Jim Barry Cabernet Sauvignon the Cover Drive 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

On the southern boundary of Coonawarra is the old Penola cricket ground, which first saw a ball bowled in anger and the flashing cover drives of the local champions in 1950. This great wine offers a melting pot of aromas. It has a self-effacing scaffold of oak, and is dominated by varietal character. Underlying milieu of spice and perfume. Spice, Vanillin, Cedar, Cassis, Raspberry, Red Capsicum, Violets, Fennel, Oregano. It has a plump yet austere palate with lingering length and depth. Firm yet passive tannins. Purple and red fruits. Well incorporated classy oak provides a secondary dimension. Provide a platform for ageing. Blackcurrant, Blackberry, Mulberry, Spice, Concentration, Muscle. While approachable enough to be imbibed immediately, short to medium cellaring will reward those with self control with a wine that will continue to evolve for 5-7 years from release.

Oh wonderful balance in a South Australian Cab. Everything is there but nothing overpowers. Does Jim Barry make a bad wine?

This is one of my favorite wines. It is very reasonably priced for the quality. I highly recommend for people who like wines like big California cabs.
