Helen's Hill Estate V Cabernet Blend 2004

I've tried a few of Helen's Hill cabernets (called "V" in this vintage, now seemingly just "Cabernets"), and they are usually solid, pleasant wines.  The 2004 was no exception.  An aroma of blackcurrants was met by a spicy palate, with sweet berry notes, some depth of flavour and length.  84 to 85 points.

Abv: 12.5%
Price: around $30
