Parker Terra Rossa Cabernet Sauvignon 2005

Proving the reasonably dependable nature of Coonawarra cabernet sauvignon, this wine (tasted after the Flametree Cabernet Merlot 2008) had a pleasant aroma of blackcurrants and a similar palate though acidity was evident.  I think I am starting to agree with Andrew Jefford that maybe some Coonawarra wines are too acidified.  83 points.
