Balnaves Cabernet Sauvignon 2008

An aroma of oak, dark fruits, really almost jammy fresh fruit, spice and chocolate.  The palate had good length and structure, but the oak was really evident at the moment of tasting.  Seems like a good wine that needs a bit of time.  87+ points.

Abv: 14.5%
Price: $35
