Trevor Jones Wicked Witch Cabernet Sauvignon 2006


While this is not a review of a Barossa shiraz, this wine was tasted blind and certainly had an unmistakeable richness and intensity that I associate with the Barossa Valley. Is it terroir? Maybe (at least in my humble opinion).

Trevor Jones' 2006 cabernet had an aroma of oak, plums and licorice. The palate was full bodied with plummy flavours and length, length and more length. This wine is not like a left bank Bordeaux and is perhaps a little rich for everyday drinking. I suspect however if it bore a prestigious left bank label it would be declared as quite an amazing wine from an amazing vintage. An excellent wine and great value. 91 points.

  1. I am working on the impact of the Barossa terroir on Shiraz. Output is probably still one year away.

  2. A great idea. I hope you publish it, because I think we need more Australian wine books.

    Cheers
