Jim Barry the Cover Drive 2014

External Review:

The Cover Drive is dark red in colour. Aromas of ripe blackberry, mint and sweet oak. The palate is rich and full bodied, exhibiting characters of blackcurrants and cassis, earthiness, briar and nettle. Shows firm, but finely grained tannins with a lingering finish. Delightfully fragrant, consistently well balanced and gently wooded, Cover Drive offers remarkable Cabernet varietal expressiveness. "The Cover Drive is a fine bargain in Cabernet. Aged in equal parts French and American oak for eleven months, it offers up abundant amounts of tobacco infused black currant fruit, a deep ruby/ purple color, and chewy/ fleshy flavors presented in an uncomplicated, but savory, mouthfilling style!"
