Shows a brooding dark red colour in the glass. On the nose we have notes of blackberry and boysenberry followed by a subtle hint of mint. A great line of acidity drives through the wine supporting talcy ripe tannins. Flavours of blackberry and mulberry shine from the medium bodied composition. As with previous releases of 'The Cover Drive', the wine displays harmonious balance and can be enjoyed now or will reward cellaring for 5 years.

Wine AdvocateA blend of Clare Valley and Coonawarra fruit, the medium to deep garnet-purple colored 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon The Cover Drive opens to a very minty black and red currant nose with tons of cloves, cedar and exotic spices. Full-bodied and concentrated on the palate with plenty of menthol and cassis flavors, the firm and chewy tannins hold through the long finish.

Wine SpectatorDark and spicy, with a peppery character weaving through the light-textured cherry and herb flavors, softening on the finish. Drink now through 2018. 3,500 cases imported.
