Cockfighter's Ghost Langhorne Creek Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

The grapes for this Cockfighter's Ghost cabernet sauvignon are sourced from Langhorne Creek south of Adelaide, and then trucked to far away Pokolbin in the Hunter Valley to be turned into wine more than one thousand kilometres away.  That grapes can travel quite so far is remarkable, although not uncommon.  The result here is a pleasant sort of a wine.  Its aromatics remind mostly of menthol and spice.  Some pangs from its 12 months in French oak resolve with air.  The palate reminds of blackcurrant, with some depth of flavour.

Rating: Acceptable to Good, Abv: 14%, Price: $22, Source: sample, Vendors:, Website:, Tasted: 2014
