    A Cracking Clique of Cabernet
    Wines In This Pack
    McLaren Vale, SA
    94pts James Halliday, 94pts Tony Keys, 94pts Sam Kim, 93pts Mike Bennie, 4.5 Stars Winestate, Top in Category Winestate
    A superb first release Cabernet under the Curtis Cavaliere label and as good as you’d expect if you’ve had the Shiraz previously. Lots going on here, with chocolate, spice, cedary oak and lots of fine tannins. Decant for an hour or so if you want to try it now or stick it in the broom closet for up to 10 years.
    McLaren Vale, SA
    93pts The Real Review
    Serafino makes excellent Shiraz and Italian varietals ... makes sense given their vineyards are in the McLaren Vale. They also seem to conjure superb Chardonnay and Cabernet which generally don’t work terribly well in the region. As with their Chardonnay, the Cabernet is varietal, packed with flavour and consistently good. The 2018 was exceptional and, the 2019 vintage follows suit. It is packed with blue and black fruits, sports a tensile cord of acidity, cedary oak and plentiful waxy tannins.
    Clare Valley, SA
    93pts Kim Brebach, 92pts Sam Kim
    This is a stunning varietal Cabernet built for the long haul. An hour or two of breathing sees a beautiful perfume emerge, which coalesces with rich fruits to form a deep palate packed with violet, blackcurrant, earth and tomato leaf. Perfect with a big lump of protein. Drink any time over the next 15 years.
    Langhorne Creek, SA
    Gold Medal - 2020 Royal Adelaide Wine Show, 90pts James Halliday
    A nose that screams Bordeaux, with blackcurrants, graphite and tobacco all joined by spearmint and suggestion of herbs. Powerful, generous and eminently gluggable right now, this will also improve for a decade in the bottle. Tannins are firm yet fine. Opens up beautifully over the course of several hours.
    Margaret River, WA
    Gold Medal, 92pts Kim Brebach, 91pts Sam Kim
    Winemaker Paul Dixon believes 2017 was one of the very best vintages he’s seen and the proof is in your glass… this wine is of a quality and depth of flavour you won’t normally find at $25. It is a complex wine offering dark fruits, dark chocolate, tomato leaf, plums, white pepper and violets. This really is a beautiful wine, delicious now and with a minimum of 5 years cellaring potential.
    South Australia
    91pts Kim Brebach
    A medium-bodied, varietal and fruit driven Cabernet sourced from a couple of premium South Australian Vineyards. Fermentation and ageing are completed in older French oak. The net result is a juicy, well-structured Cab which finishes with fine tannins. Enjoy any time over the next 5 years.

    Six cracking Cabs and blends thereof that we suspect will inspire a smile or hush a hackle as needed... here’s a thought on each of them...

    Serafino Black Label McLaren Vale Cabernet 2019
    Long, polished and plush, with plenty of varietal fruit and a streak of salinity. Quite a triumph for McLaren Cabernet which can struggle to make awesome, authentic Cab. Serafino have a habit of making the unexpected happen though (they also make superb McLaren Chardonnay). This isn’t merely good ‘for McLaren Vale’ it is superb Cab full stop. There’re black fruits, graphite, plump tannins and great length and depth. The kinda Cab you can just lean into and have it regale you.

    Curtis Family Vineyards Cavaliere McLaren Vale Cabernet 2015
