Cabernet Sauvignon, "Pride of the Fleurieu" 2013

Dandelion Vineyards

Scented blueberries, cassis and anise aromas with baking spice, cedar and blackberry notes. Rich, deep, full-flavored, blueberry, black plums, figs and red berry flavors. Cedar, clove, nutmeg and classic Cabernet tannins softened by smooth, mouth-filling fruit before a really extended finish.

Reviews

  • "88 points. Vivid purple. Ripe, expansive nose displays an array of jammy dark fruit scents and a hint of succulent herbs. Broad, fleshy and warm in the mouth, offering plush blackcurrant and singed plum flavors that tighten up slowly on the back half. Supple tannins come in late and fade into the wine's lush dark fruit on the finish. Plenty rich but I'd like to have seen a bit more vibrancy here." (vinous)
