Brand's Laira Blockers Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon 2009

If you are looking for a Cabernet ticking all the boxes and not burning a hole in your wallet, grab hold of this.

I lined this up against some more expensive Cabernets and this was my pick by a mile.

Consistency across vintages hands you a Cabernet which possesses all the qualities you are looking for.

Leafy, capsicum, blackberry, all the usual traits delivering wonderful aromas.

The palate is well structured and is what a Cabernet needs to be. Dense fruit, follow through, oak spot on. Plummy, black fruit flavours, a lick of chocolate, all which sits nicely beside the oak that complements this wine well.

For $28, this is a great Cabernet. Delightful drinking. Get it.
