R Wines Cabernet Sauvignon Barossa Valley 2007
87 points Josh Raynolds (International Wine Cellar): Bright ruby. Spicy aromas of dark cherry, redcurrant, mint and tobacco. Juicy and gently sweet, with a soft texture to the ripe cherry and plum flavors. Offers good easygoing appeal, decent finishing clarity and sweet persistence. (Sep/Oct 2009)
Good food wine with long finish.
For the price, this is a good, deep, big and complex cab. Lots going on. Lacks a bit of finesse being so bold, but it's good!
Somebody bought this for me along w/ a bottle of "B*tch" when my divorce was finalized ;-). Deep fruity red w/ strong legs. I took away definite tastes of black cherry. A very bold cab that didn't have me running back to the bottle.
I really love this wine. Every bottle I open seems to taste better than the last and the first bottle was great. As soon as I opened the first bottle knew it was going to be good. Wonderful to the nose with a great taste.
Tried this with a pepper steak w/ some of this wine in it. Great berry taste and goes down easy
External Reviews for R Wines Cabernet Sauvignon Barossa Valley
Dark rich red, with bright crimson hues. Fresh, yet rich classic varietal nose, consisting of black olive, fresh blackberries and raspberries. The soft palate displays complexity of fruit and oak, with blackcurrant and spicy clove characters, balanced with a fine tannin finish.This wine is anything but evil. What could be nicer than top-rate Cabernet fruit from some of South Australia’s best regions made into a voluptuous wine by Chris Ringland and, it’s all wrapped into an edgy package at a steal of a price. Evil is: 100 % Cabernet from 10 to 30 year old vines. Fruit came from three distinctly different regions: 38% McLaren Vale, 37% Barossa, 25% Pyrenees.
