Cabernet Sauvignon 2014
|Region:||Clare Valley & Coonawarra|
Generous ripe fruit flavours of the Clare Valley are balanced with elegant, fine tannins, lifted mint character and velvety finish of the Coonawarra.Download Full Winemaker Note
At release, the wine is a deep red colour to the centre with a vibrant purple hue to the edges.
The wine displays lifted aromas of blackcurrant, cassis and subtle choc-mint characters along with complex spice and cigar box from the oak.
This is a rich full-bodied wine yet at the same time, remains in balanced across the palate with fine, elegant tannins – the hallmark of great Cabernet. Intense flavours of blackcurrant and cassis delight with subtle savoury French oak characters of cedar and spice. The finish is long and persistent.
Will reward careful cellaring in ideal conditions to 2024, possibly beyond.

Plump purple color. Dark and saucy aromas of black cherries and roasted plums, along with a bold shot of menthol and eucalyptus, sweet coffee and clove. Full-bodied with moderate tannins but a refreshing sense of acidity holds it together nicely. Black cherries and blueberry fruit, ripe and juicy, topped in coffee grounds, vanilla, eucalyptus and pepper. Juicy and rich but shows some complexity of non-fruit flavors to keep it interesting. A split of juice from Clare Valley and Coonawarra.

The 2014 Wakefield Jaraman Cabernet Sauvignon from the Clare Valley and Coonawarra fruit is delicious û and Cabernet Sauvignon from this producer is really special. The Jaraman designation wines are created by joining exceptional vineyard designate parcels from two iconic wine regions in Australia. The winemaking approach ensures the distinct regional characteristics each take the spotlight while creating an enticing and intriguing unison that is carefully crafted to become so much more than merely the sum of those parts.

Minty coolness on the nose of this gorgeous Australian red wine is flooded by fleshy blackberry richness on the palate. A hedonist's wine to fill the senses. Full-bodied and smooth Cabernet Sauvignon. Finishes with dried herbs, tobacco leaves and cedar brush. Very satisfying, especially at this price. Pair with ribeye steak.
