Jim Barry the Cover Drive Coonawarra Cabernet Australia 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Tasting Notes<br/>This wine is bright plum in color with purple tints. The nose shows intensely complex characters of blackcurrant and cedar spice. This is followed on the palate by an eruption of fruit flavors - primarily dark cherry and blackberry, with a distinctive Coonawarra cassis character. The tannins are fine grained and supple and the wine has a long, integrated finish. As with previous releases of 'The Cover Drive', the wine displays harmonious balance and can be enjoyed now or will reward cellaring for 2-3 years.<br/><br/>
