Jacob's Creek Double Barrel Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

Tasted alongside the Shiraz of the same range and vintage, perhaps I offer that the Cabernet may be better suited to seasoned (in the nicest way) oak additions. 

Still varietally true, with blackcurrant and cedar; it's smooth and creamy across the palate - tannins are somewhat firmer maybe, and certainly make themselves known. 

Carries a generosity across the finish - my personal pick of the two. 90 

Tasted on: Sunday 16th June, a Leaf day
Source: Sample
Price: $24.99
