Pours a deep ruby colour, with an earthy blackberry aroma. The first taste is smooth, a mouthful of blackberry and black plums, but that then expands out to forest fruits and bark flavor with a good complexity. The finish is lingering and dry, with notes of cedar wood and mocha.
Best to be enjoyed with a good steak, the flavor will defiantly grow in the mouth. This easily competes with wines many times its price.
This Clare Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is part of the Aldi Exquisite Collection so should be available in limited quantities all year round. Worth buying more than one if you can get it.
