Review: 2016 Barossa Valley Estate Cabernet Sauvignon

This Aussie cabernet shows some of the classic trappings of the grape: blackberry and currants, with a sweetness that approaches pie filling at times. As the fruit mellows out in the glass, the wine evolves to show notes of clove, mint, and graphite, a modest acidity balancing a touch of vanilla. The racier back end allows the wine to show more complexity than you might otherwise expect based on first impressions.
