2007 Wakefield Cabernet Sauvignon Clare Valley
|An interesting Aussie Cab that’s rich, flavorful and bold for $12.99 at Costco. |
This Clare Valley Cab is noticeably Australian given its richness and spicy touch, and is assembled quite nicely for a wine this price. Nose was peppery and spicy, reminiscent of a Shiraz; feels big in the mouth, kind of bursts into each drink and then slowly finishes, a little on the dry side with more spice.
For a $13 Cab there is nothing wrong with this one. It’s smooth and fun to drink. It is a tad different than the Cabs from the US and elsewhere, and it’s worth buying for that if for nothing else (that’s what I meant by interesting earlier). Give it a shot.
