Shaw Vineyard Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

Highly perfumed, black and purple fruits, minty eucalypt. Attractive proposition. 

Medium bodied, what flows out of the glass in aroma, follows on to the palate. Black fruit and mint in abundance - checked, in balance. 

More fruit than savoury character - moderate tannin. Not the most compelling Cabernet, but it works as a fruity, forward red that slips down. Easy drinker - reasonable length. 88 

Tasted on: Thursday 14th July, a Leaf day

Price: $25
