Simpatico Secret Vale Cabernet Sauvignon

Expert Reviews

James Halliday (2010 Vintage) says
Dense, deep purple-red; a singularly potent, intense Cabernet Sauvignon that stays within varietal bounds, showing what the Barossa Valley can sometimes deliver with the variety; has lashings of blackcurrant, blackberry and bitter chocolate on the full-bodied palate; despite the appropriate presence of ripe tannins, has an almost juicy lift to the finish. Exceptional value.

Sound wine with richly integrated mocha aromas and simple, elegant, varietal palate.
