Jim Barry the Cover Drive Cabernet Sauvignon South Australia 2013

External Review by We Speak Wine:

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
