Jim Barry Cover Drive Cabernet Sauvignon 2007


Jim Barry's Cover Drive cabernet sauvignon is a reliable wine.  Only the GI of "South Australia" is claimed on the label.  The 2007 vintage, tasted here with 8 years of age on it, has aromatics of sweet plums, licorice and vanilla.  The palate is mid length, with a sweet fruit and leafy expression, and some developing hints of earthy mulch.  This wine is good now, and I would suggest has reached its peak.  Drink up.  G
