Ringbolt Ring Bolt Cabernet Sauvignon Margaret River 2007
Fairly rich, fruity and licorice nose. Very ripe fruit aromas. Licorice and anise persist throughout, its really dripping with baked black fruits (plums, cherries and figs). Finishes on thick chocolate.
My boyfriend and I have considered a working holiday in Perth, Australia which of course spurred my interest in the Margaret River Wine region of Western Australia. A random trip to the store and a peripheral glance landed me on this charming little find of a wine. I sampled it with a nice Ossau-Iraty cheese and found it absolutely divine. A surprising treat. It consisted of very ripe fruits with a slight spice in the front which was followed by a long yet clean finish. The slight hints of oak was lovely with the rich taste of mulberries and a floral aroma. Certainly a thumbs up to Australia for a great cab and an all around steal for quality to price.
