Mount Horrocks Clare Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

This is hands-down the best cabernet from Mount Horrocks yet. It sings with exacting varietal distinction of cassis, crunchy blackcurrants, red capsicum and tobacco leaf, at once ripe and sumptuous and at the same time well structured with firm, fine, chewy tannins and taut acid. It’s long and intense yet eminently medium-bodied. Outstanding. $30 at Wine Cow.
