Food Pairings for Jim Barry Cover Drive Cabernet Sauvignon
Oh wonderful balance in a South Australian Cab. Everything is there but nothing overpowers. Does Jim Barry make a bad wine?
wine spectator rates this wine at 88. drink now through 2012.
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.
Pulled this out in October 2011 and it is still fantastic. Mellow nose with hearty taste, nice spicy heat and rounded fat finish. Wouldn't leave more than another year this is a drinker for summer 2011/2012
nutmeg and blackcurrant on the nose, the palate is soft and smooth with a lot of fruit and complexity. An truly stellar wine.
External Reviews for Jim Barry Cover Drive Cabernet Sauvignon
Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2010 The Cover Drive Cabernet Sauvignon shows off a vibrant, ripe, black cherry and red plum core with notes of cloves and vanilla plus a hint of spice. Medium to full-bodied with medium levels of finely-grained tannins, it has a crisp acid line, good fruit concentration and a nice long, spicy finish. Drink it now to 2017.
Bright and jazzy, with juicy blackberry, chocolate and herb flavors, lingering against tight tannins. Drink now through 2016.
'Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2009 The Cover Drive Cabernet Sauvignon presents intense cassis and blackberries aromas with hints of pencil shavings, cloves and bay leaf. Medium-full bodied, it has a medium level of grainy tannins, lively acidity and mouth-filling, very pure berry flavors, finishing long. Drink it now through 2016.' Wine Advocate, 90 Points 'Although there are contradictory statements in the technical background to the wine, it seems this is a Coonawarra/Clare Valley blend (not 100% Coonawarra) that produces a truly enjoyable, delicious red berry and cassis-fruited wine, the tannins and oak on the boundary. Drink whenever you wish.' James Halliday, 90 Points
