2016 Petaluma Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon
This Cabernet Sauvignon from Coonawarra is a full flavoured, rich dry red, and shows the spicy, juicy bright fruits for which the region is renowned. Aromas of liquorice cassis and cedar are complemented by black fruits and a lovely hint of mint and Cabernet leaf. The palate is bright and juicy, is elegant and has lovely soft sandy abundant tannin.
Winemaker Brian Croser’s vision for Petaluma was to make world class wines from classic European varieties by choosing the best region for each variety and acquiring or planting the best vineyard in that region. A rich elegant mouth filling classic Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon fromthe terra rossa soils, the 2016 is a lovely drink-now wine, but one that will age gracefully for decades.
