Koonowla Single Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

Black fruits. Plummy. Not as voluptuous as I was anticipating. Oak is there but has a damp type aroma about it.

Bitter dark chocolate cuts in before a dash of spice enters the fray moving to firmish drying tannins. It's sapping and along with perky acid the mouth it just dries out. Seems a little bitsy in some ways.

Not wine I enjoyed that much and when lined up against others of similar vintage and region it sat a few cogs back.
