09 Maroon Spring Mountain Cabernet ($60) ☺☺☺

A deep ruby coloured Cabernet which benefits from decanting before drinking. We waited about an hour before tasting and the initial nose was of plums and dark berry style fruit. The taste was plums and prunes with chocolate undertones all wrapped up in firm tannins and good balance. I think this will be better next year but can easily be enjoyed food, a nice lamb chop would be a great choice ! This wine is on offer right now and can be bought nearer $30 which makes it great value as opposed to the $60 initial price point.
