Brand’s Laira, The Marching Captain, Cabernet Sauvignon, Coonawara, 2018


A little porty and garnet in hue. Crushed black and blue berries with choc/mint oak and regional influence. Some animalistic fleece/lanolin under turned earth. Full bodied with blocky dark fruit and silty tannins. Medium length of flavour that clips with bittersweet dark chocolate and coffee grounds. Perfect match for mid-week hearty, slow cooked stews or casseroles. 

RRP: $18
Alc: 14%
Rating: 17.25/20 (88/100)
