All-rounder cabernet

Botham 80 Series Cabernet Sauvignon 2016, Coonawarra, AUD $18-$25

This is a deep, dark red wine, full-bodied like its namesake and loaded with concentrated blackberries – sweet and plush on the nose, generous and ample on the palate. The tannins are very supple. It pushes ripeness to the brink and gets away with it. It’s AUD $18 by the dozen. (Screwcap)
