Jim Barry The Cover Drive Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

SKU 21752


Color: In the glass this wine shows a bright garnet red with a violet hue. Nose: The nose opens with notes of juicy blackcurrant and blackberry aromatics, balanced with savoury notes of dried herbs and turned earth. Palate: The palate displays generous red and blackcurrant fruit, with hints of liquorice, tobacco and savoury oak. Soft, silky tannins round out a harmonious and moreish wine which can be enjoyed now or will reward cellaring for 5 years.

Wine EnthusiastThis wine offers a lot of quality at an affordable price. Lovers of classic big reds will dig the ripe plum, berry, cola, vanilla and earthy, herbal aromas. The tannins are tightly wound and drying but are balanced by silky red fruit with herbal nuances. There's power here, but also balance and restraint. Drink now with protein and until 2029.

Wine AdvocateFresh and floral, the medium-bodied 2016 Cover Drive Cabernet Sauvignon fits in with current Australian trends. Cassis and red currant notes are joined by soft, mild tannins on the finish. This is ideal for drinking over the next 3-4 years.

Wine SpectatorA savory thread weaves in and out of this dense wine, with touches of mineral, black walnut, sage and red licorice. The tannins are polished and the finish is spicy. Drink now through 2030.
