Deakin Estate River to Vine Cabernet Sauvignon 2016


Ten buck Cabernet punching above its weight.

You'd be a hard marker to say this wasn't an enjoyable wine. It's varietal. It smells good. It's delicious!

Blackberries and black currants, tobacco synonymous with the variety, even some black olive. Give it a good swirl and tomato leaf makes an entrance. Sooty tannins to finish. Sure it's not gutsy nor complex, but there's a respectable vibe to its delivery and presence. A reliable penny pincher.

Drink now to five years.
