Garry Walsh - 2012 Balgownie Estate Cabernet Sauvignon Review - 94 points

"Often a surly thing as a youngster, but very much a legend of Australian Wine, though maybe one that has fallen out of fashion? Dark cherries, licorice, mint, cedar, sweet rolling tobacco and hazlenuts. medium to full bodied, richly fruited, but deeply savoury and tannic with it. Has an ironstone minerality through it, and all the way, those tannins ride the wine hard and remind you that it's Cabernet, and not to be taken lightly. Finish is precise and very long. Fleshy but serious. In short, bloody good." Drink 2018 - 2032

Rated: 94+ points
