O'Leary Walker Clare Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

Clare Cabernet when on song, can simply be beautiful. It may not carry the gravitas of some more traditional regions, or possess the same structure, but for around $20 here we have a compelling drinking proposition.

Such an attractive introduction: menthol, red fruit, choc-mint, touch of bay leaf. So fresh and vibrant.

Medium bodied, red fruit freshness, acidity too; segues to a little cherry and black compote, easy tannin - fine, veering towards a little powdery.

Good length - flavour, body and - in its own way - a little structure. 92

Tasted on: Saturday 29th November, a Flower day
Source: Sample
Price: $22
