A straight Cabernet Sauvignon from the wonderful Petaluma Coonawarra vineyards this has that lovely, mint slice regional Coonawarra nose over a chewy, grunty, proper old school palate. So much to chew on here! Very tasty.
The 2013 Petaluma Cabernet Sauvignon is a full flavoured, rich dry red, and shows all the spicy juicy fruit of which the region is renowned. Aromas of black currants, liquorice cassis and cedar are complemented by a lovely hint of mint.
The palate is big and rich, but also has elegance. Ripe, soft sandy tannins contribute to a generous textural mouth feel.
An approachable dry red now, the 2013 Cabernet will age gracefully for many years.
