Grant Burge Cameron Vale Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

I was hunting around for the remote control when I opened this - it was rather mute, taking a good hour to start displaying any character.

Cedar, spice, wafery oak. Muted - lacking in fruit or anything in substance. Nothing particularly stands out, nothing seems particularly out of place.

With time, a little black fruit started to draw out. There's a little character on the finish. Overall I found it pretty uninspiring, unconvincing. The plus sign here a little optimism on my part. 86+

Tasted on: Friday 8th August, a Fruit day
