Jim Barry the Cover Drive Cabernet Sauvignon South Australia 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

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. 90 pointsRobert Parker's Wine AdvocateThe Jim Barry "The Cover Drive" Cabernet Sauvignon comes from Coonawarra which is an important wine region in South Australia's Limestone Coast Zone and the most popularly revered area of Australia for Cabernet Sauvignon, grown on its famous strip of terra rossa soil. Its cool, Mediterranean climate is very similar to that of Bordeaux.

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
