O’Leary Walker Clare Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

Dense, crunchy black- and redcurrants and cassis define a style at once impeccably varietal and at the same time succulent and generous. This is classic Clare cabernet, with hints of eucalypt and mint, but the focus remains resolutely on deep and well-structured black fruit definition, underlined by firm, fine, chewy tannins. Value and potential. $17 at Jim Murphy’s.
