Jim Barry the Cover Drive Cabernet Sauvignon Coonawara 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

Jim Barry ''The Cover Drive'' Cabernet Sauvignon 2012 is a blend of select parcels of fruit from family-owned Cabernet Sauvignon vineyards in the Clare Valley that are blended to produce a wine that is rich, soft and approachable. A deep garnet in color, this Australian red offers aromas of cassis, dark berries and hints of dried herbs on the nose. On the palate, flavors of blackcurrant, mint and morello cherries with medium body, fine tannins and harmonious balance.

Fruit from this vineyard, along with selected parcels of fruit from our family owned Cabernet Sauvignon vineyards in the Clare Valley have been blended to produce a wine that is rich, soft and approachable.Sight: This wine is deep garnet in colour with high clarity.Smell: The nose is very aromatic, displaying primary characters of cassis and dark berries with subtle hints of dried herbs.Taste: The palate is medium bodied and generous, showing fine tannins, highlighted by flavours of blackcurrant, mint and morello cherries.Time: 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. - Winery
