Buy of the Week AU

Bowen Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2016, Coonawarra AUD$34-$37

The 2016 Coonawarra vintage was a ripper, and the miracle is that this wine’s price is still under AUD $40 and has barely risen over the years. Deep, dark youthful red/purple, with a powerful blackberry aroma neatly augmented by fine oak. Very full-bodied, firm and structured. Great persistence; awesome power. (Screwcap)
