- Cellar 3 - 4 years (2007-2008)
- ABV 15%
- Closure: Cork
Opaque black crimson colour with deep crimson hue. Aroma of plum, spice, cedar, chocolate and cassis, showing very good varietal character. The palate reveals flavours of ripe plum, spice, mocha and blackcurrant, with black pepper and cedar on the back palate. Fine grained dry tannins, followed by a long aftertaste of coffee, blackcurrant and spice. A big, generous Cabernet – a hit for 6!
Cellar 3-4 years (2008-2009)
The outstanding 2003 Cabernet Sauvignon The Cover Drive, a knock-out value, represents one of the finest bargains in Cabernet Sauvignon in the marketplace. Terrific minty, black currant aromas jump from the glass of this savory, fleshy, medium to full-bodied, silky-textured, luscious Cabernet. Readers who are wondering about Jim Barry’s flagship offering, the Shiraz Armagh, should refer to issue #155, where both the 2001 and 2002 received fabulous reviews. I have not yet tasted the unreleased 2003 The Armagh. However, I did recently taste the 1989 Shiraz The Armagh, and rated it 93 points. It is a magnificent wine still on the upside of its potential. These cuvees can easily last 20-25 years.
