Jim Barry The Benbournie Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

Critical Acclaim: 91 pts James Suckling.

About the Wine: Named after the settlement now knows as a ‘lost’ township, Benbournie was situated between the towns of Clare and Blyth. The Benbournie is from a single vineyard on our McRae Wood property, planted by Jim Barry in 1964.

Winemaker's Tasting Notes: This wine is a deep crimson red in the glass. Intensely aromatic with a mix of dark vine fruits, dark chocolate, fresh garden herbs, cedar oak and a touch of earth. The palate is flooded with generous dark berry flavours with savoury notes of earth, clove and cedar. Very fine, mineralic tannin lends length and style to a wine of great presence and persistence.

"Some earthy notes with eucalyptus, red plums and oak spice, leading to a firm, sinewy palate that has cocoa-powder, blackberry and dark-chocolate flavors. Drink or hold. Screw cap."- James Suckling.

Varietal: Cabernet Sauvignon.
