There is something very special about Barossa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon and when the locals get it right they are some of the best cabernets in the country. This example comes from a patch of clay and limestone soils in Light pass. It is deeply coloured, as you would expect, although the fruit is quite reserved right now with aromas of cassis, leafy cedar and violets supported by oak in the background. It is a bit more expressive in the mouth showing the rich 2019 vintage with chocolate, blackberry and black olive flavours plus a slightly green edge. Tannins are sinewy so it is also a little angular right now so needs some time to settle. But give it five years and this wine will sing.
