Cook's Lot Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

A reasonable Cabernet which didn't really get me excited which is a first for a Cook's Lot wine. I've generally really liked their style of wines and the vibrancy they deliver.

Food helped the wine chill out a little more, and for a easy dish of spag bol, pizza or even a steak, this is a neat fit.

Roasted capsicum, black fruits and barbequed steak aromas. Some good oak complimented by spicy blackcurrant flavours on the palate. Tannins were grippy and grainy.

After time in the glass the wine softened nicely, and although slips down easy, it just didn't have any X factor for me.
