Angus the Bull Cabernet Sauvignon 2008

At a time when regionality is fast becoming accepted wisdom, it is perhaps brave to have on the shelf a "South Eastern Australia" wine retailing for around $25.  It would want to be good.  This wine unfortunately was not to my palate: it had a leafy varietal aroma, but a plain taste somewhat reminiscent of tomato stalks.  Uninteresting.  76 points.

Abv: 14.5%
Price: $23.99 (I've quoted Vintage Cellar's single bottle price; it frustrates me that they give such prominence to their "dozen" price in advertising)
