Barossa Valley Estate E Minor Cabernet Merlot

Expert Reviews

Campbell Mattinson & Gary Walsh (2007 Vintage) says
Screwcap closures have largely been a boon for drinkers, because the wine is more often delivered to drinkers as the winemaker intended. Screwcaps aren't perfect, though, and one thing we often find is that wines in screwcapsealed bottles often taste better if you air them after opening. This tastes much better if you decant it. Then lovely flavours of blackberry jubes and mulberries push forward - against a surprisingly strong tide of tannin. There's a lot to chew on here and we like that. Great purity through the finish, though it needs to be accompanied by a serving of protein.

Deep colour; masses of blackberry fruit along with dark chocolate and a touch of licorice; a tribute to the '06 vintage and the winemaking. Tip-top value.

Intense, earthy style with tarry/black olive aromas and nice red fruit flavours supported by tannins and oak.

Barossa Valley Estate is part of the old Hardys empire (now called Constellation) and, without doubt, the entire portfolio has lifted a few cogs over the past couple of years. Great news for drinkers € Barossa Valley cabernet keeps out-performing expectations. This one would keep us happy most days of the week, blessed as it is with excellent flavours of chocolate, blackcurrant, briarwood and toasty oak. The score may even be a tad harsh. Good stuff.
