Rockford Rifle Range Cabernet Sauvignon 2008

I'll say it at the outset: this is a nice wine, it's just not a style of cabernet that I normally drink/like (ie warm climate, Barossa Valley).  Tough Barossa Valley vintage too in 2008.  The wine has an aroma of oak, capsicum, black olives and dusty fruit.  The palate had some lean acidity, tannins, leather and a certain richness.  Oh, and a little length too.  Interesting? Yes.  A good wine?  Mostly.  It may evolve.

Rating: Good, Abv: 14.5%, Price: $35, Vendors: www.wine-searcher.com, Website: http://www.rockfordwines.com.au, Tasted: 2011
