A blend of Clare Valley and Coonawarra fruit, the medium to deep garnet-purple colored 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon The Cover Drive opens to a very minty black and red currant nose with tons of cloves, cedar and exotic spices. Full-bodied and concentrated on the palate with plenty of menthol and cassis flavors, the firm and chewy tannins hold through the long finish. Score - 90+.

This dry, full-bodied and woody red displays a complex and intense nose. On the palate, its refreshing acidity, fleshy tannins, and broad texture precede a medium finish.
Rich and supple on the palate, showing nicely concentrated dark berry flavors, juicy acidity and slow-building mocha and vanilla qualities.
