Colloca Estate Winery Eden Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2018, Australia

Dark ruby, almost inky in color, with a short reddish rim.

Fruity nose of blueberries, cherries, black currants, licorice, sweet vanilla, oak, light earth, chocolates, coffee and black pepper.

Medium plus in body with medium acidity.

Dry on the palate with black plums, cooked cherries, oak, vanilla, licorice, cloves, herbs, spices, dark chocolates, coffee, peppercorn and light earth.

Medium plus on the finish with soft tannins and tangy cherries.

This is a very tasty Single Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon. Nicely balanced with nice complexity and a soft mouthfeel.

A good wine to drink all by itself, but good with food too. Fruit forward, tangy and very tasty.

This Australian Cabernet Sauvignon from Barossa Valley drinks like a California Cabernet.

A very nice Porch Wine and good right out of the bottle. As it opens up, soft tannins come in (60 minutes). Would be interesting to see how this evolves in the next 3 to 5 years.

I paired it with a Charcuterie board of meats and cheeses.

100% Cabernet Sauvignon grapes were aged in American Oak barrels for 18 months. A small production of only 455 cases.

14% alcohol by volume.

90 points.

$28.
