Frog Belly Cabernet Sauvignon, Margaret River 2014 $13
The colour is deep, dark red/purple and the aroma is all about ripe, clean cabernet berries, uncluttered by obvious oak. The palate is medium-bodied, intense and firm. A modern, fruit-driven cabernet; amazing value. (14 per cent alcohol; screw cap.)
