Kangarilla Road Cabernet Sauvignon 2006 wine review by (PB)
Here is another Aussie wine from McClaren Vale.
Presents with a deep black cherry hue around pronounced dark berry fruit with big green pepper and sweet notes of ripe black plums, berries, cigar box notes with more sweet fragrant fruit.
Palate--At first it tastes "salty," tight yet with plush tannins and a great mouth feel but it needs to breathe. I decanted it...
Rich, ripe plums and black cherry fruit finishing with a little smoke.
I don't have much experience with Aussie Cabs but this is really nice. I paid $17 for it--on sale from $25. It is a nice wine in all ways. We grilled up a steak and it was perfect so raise a glass.
