This is an aged cabernet sauvignon release from Mitchell Wines in the Clare Valley. The vineyard does not see irrigation and the wine is estate bottled. From the 2010 vintage, it’s a deeply coloured wine in the glass. It opens to aromas of dark, baked plums. The palate is very typical of Clare Valley cabernet. The tannins are fine and very firm and its fullish body is complemented by leaf, clove, cedar and an “old world” style savoury character. This is a fine, serious and savoury release that is nonetheless quite intense in its expression of Clare Valley fruit. There’s a lot of interest here for the modest price of $28. Rating: Very Good. Price: $28. Source: Sample.
