Taylors Jaraman Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

This wine, a somewhat geographically unlikely coupling of cabernet sauvignon from Clare Valley and Coonawarra (being more than 450 kilometres by road apart), reminds squarely of a Coonawarra cabernet sauvignon.  Yet, the blend for the 2013 vintage is in fact 55% from the Clare Valley and 45% from Coonawarra.  Its aromatics remind of clove, iron filings, earth, licorice, mint and dark olive.  The palate is balanced, elegant in styling and with a mid length finish.

Rating: Good, Abv: 14.5%, Price: $29, Source: sample, Vendors and website:, Tasted: 2015
