Chambers Rutherglen Cabernet Sauvignon

Varietally accurate cabernet, pre-aged for eight years at just $10 (direct). Yes, you heard me correctly. Chambers aims for a low alcohol, high acid style that dispels the myth that Rutherglen is all about hot, baked fortifieds and monstrous reds. This is a bright and lively cabernet, refreshingly youthful for its pending release as an eight-year-old. Age has softened its tannins, but it retains sufficient taut acidity to keep its red fruits fresh for some time yet. A tangy, light lunchtime style, and a true bargain.
