Angove Long Row Cabernet Sauvignon

Cracka Value Rating

Cracka Review

The Angove family are one of the most trusted names in Aussie wine, and they always make some of the best value wines around. This juicy fruity cab sav is very much in that mould, and shows smells and flavours of blackcurrants, sweet roast capsicum and toastiness on the nose, whilst the palate is medium-bodied, smooth and fruity, with gentle tannins, flicks of savouriness, and a mellow, plummy finish. Ideal for that mid-week pasta or pizza!

Winemaker's Notes

Deep red in colour, with some purple hues, complex aromas of red berry integrate perfectly with more savoury and red pepper notes with a gentle touch of oak. The rich mouth filling palate has flavours following through from the initial impression of berries and more complex capsicum family characters with delightful savoury notes, clean tannins and soft background oak on the finish. This wine will cellar well for up to 4 years and is the perfect partner to roast lamb or grilled vegetable lasagne.

Angove Long Row Cabernet Sauvignon

Expert Reviews

James Halliday (2011 Vintage) says
Bright colour with plenty of depth; an astonishing achievement for '11, it has clear cabernet sauvignon varietal character with a cool-climate flourish to its mix of redcurrant and herbaceous flavours; the tannins are not obvious, but do their job. Ludicrously good value, and masterful winemaking. Don't dream of cellaring it.

James Halliday (2010 Vintage) says
Has retained good colour; a testament to the quality of the '10 vintage from top to bottom; there is a startling degree of flavour and texture, dark chocolate and mocha surrounding the black currant fruit, and a platform of soft tannins.

A big tannic number, with dark, inky, berry fruits and some sweet and sour characters, with a long, lingering finish.

A lot of folks nowadays think they don't like cabernet - we're not sure why. It's a classic variety and it drinks beautifully with food. Gosh this is good. It's sturdy and rich, ripe and refreshing - Mattinson reckons he'd pay twice the price and still be happy. It tastes of dusty blackcurrant and subtle-but-effective toasty oak. Satiny texture, lovely length, it's not for cellaring, but as a drink now it's a beauty.

A Riverland cabernet that has plenty of oak and tannins but is balanced by the depth of dark berry fruit. There's some silky texture to round out the picture.

Flavoursome wine with a savoury, dusty nose and ripe blackcurrant palate showing good varietal definition.

You can still get this quality for under ten bucks? Well, blow us down. Mattinson reckons this is the perfect barbecue red ... given the right weather conditions, of course. Forget the score; just look at the price and read how good it tastes, and then go out and get yourself some. It's full of saucy, ripe, curranty flavour and, while it borders on being too sweet, it slips down with exceptional ease and has no jagged edges at all. Real good fun, this.

Good colour; a clean bouquet with no reduction, then attractive juicy red and black fruits with a savoury twist of tannins and oak on the finish. Great value.

The Riverland's big improver has made a classically unpretentious quaffer that drinks beautifully - very soft and fruity with redcurrant and blackcurrant flavours, succulent and silky smooth texture, neat balance and supple gentle finish. Quaff on!

It's not a name that immediately springs to mind, but Angove's is one of Australia's oldest family wine names. It started in the wine business back in 1886. 2006 RELEASE Super quaffer. Open-faced and generous, its forest berry flavours smooth, simple and satisfying. Excellent complement of chewy tannins. Great value. Contender for Big Red 'Widely Available' Bargain of the Year. I've even seen this around the S7 mark - and extraordinary value at that, DRINK 2008-2009.

Excellent wine at the price; has both structure and varietal character, with ample length, and not forced.

The better of the two Angove's reds - softer, rounder, and easier to drink, plum and blackberry flavours and a smooth, approachable finish.
