Rich and fleshy red

Serafino Cabernet Sauvignon 2015, McLaren Vale, AUD $24-$28

This is outstanding value: a multiple gold-medal cabernet at less than AUD $30. Deep colour; cedar, violet and blackberry aromas with a high note of fresh herbs; the palate is rich and fruit-sweet with ample soft tannins and fleshy texture. Very smart cabernet. (Screwcap)
