Taylors Jaraman Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

Taylors have just celebrated 50 years of releases. True to modern Australian form, the Jaraman series sees blending from prime regions for the varieties.

Taylors, Jaraman, Cabernet Sauvignon, Clare Valley/Coonawarra, 2016

Offering the best of the two regions, there’s interplay between minty Coonawarra and earthy pencilly Clare Valley. Pulpy blackcurrant and blackberry with a swathe of chocolate and cedary oak. The palate offering dour chunky, drying tannin with peepholes through to the rich black/purple fruit. The choc/mint a feature (rather than a highlight) and drapes across all yet the wine keeps itself tidy and true to style/intent. Cellar worthy to allow the composition to come together.

RRP: $32
Alc: 14.5%
Rating:  17.25/20
