Wine Colour
At release, the wine is a deep red colour to the centre with a vibrant purple hue to the edges.

Wine Bouquet
The wine displays lifted aromas of blackcurrant, cassis and subtle choc-mint characters along with complex spice and cigar box from the oak.

Wine Palate
This is a rich full-bodied wine that will benefit from time in the bottle. It is a well-balanced wine across the palate with fine, elegant tannins – the hallmark of great Cabernet. Intense flavours of blackcurrant and cassis delight with subtle savoury French oak characters of cedar and spice. The finish is long and persistent.

Cellaring Notes
Will reward careful cellaring in ideal conditions to 2022, possibly beyond.

  • Jaraman Cabernet Sauvignon 201286/100

    Isaac Baker, Terroirist - Wine Blog, October 2013


    The nose explodes with blackberry, blueberry, milk chocolate and floral notes, so obviously Australian, but enjoyable. Medium tannins, medium acid do a decent job supporting the rich blueberry and blackberry fruit. Notes of toast, mocha and smoke. Despite the richness, itÆs still easily drinkable and not overbearing.

    Opaque with a deep purple rim and stained legs. Aromas of black cherry, crushed raspberry, chewy plums, cardamom, eucalyptus and fruit cake. Moderate tannins balance with chewy cherry, crushed boysenberry and dried strawberries along with a hint of candied violet

    screw cap. A rich, round, full bodied Cabernet with excellent depth of fruit (blackberry, raspberry jam), with overtones of eucalyptus, pepper, green olive, toast and tobacco. It is balanced and long on the finish, with moderate tannin. Great value [2015-2019]

  • Full Bodied Red Wines
    Jaraman Cabernet Sauvignon 20124.5 stars

    Colin Ford, WineNZ, July 2014

    Full Bodied Red Wines
    Dark, dark red colour; youthful with an intense minty character on the nose. Big, ripe and generous in the mouth with big, typically old-fashioned Aussie cabernet fruit, packed with mint, plums, blackberry and leather. Very good concentration on show here and quite good complexity with plenty of depth of flavour. There's plenty of oak too, well-melded amongst the fruit. The big, strapping tannins are excellent and provide a long, powerful finish. This is truly a take no prisoners style!

    Robert Whitley, WineReviewOnline, January 2016


    Wakefield's Jaraman Cab straddles two of South Australia's finest appellations and the result is a sensational Cabernet that exhibits rich aromas of blackberry and red currant, with a strong note of eucalyptus and spice. The tannins are supple and sweet. On the mid-palate the wine is layered and complex, firmly structured and shows excellent persistence on the finish.

    Josh Greene, Wine & Spirits, February 2016


    Bright with herbal spice, this is a brisk cabernet with the mintiness of Coonawarra and the eucalyptus notes of Clare. The tannins in the end of the wine will mellow in the context of grilled meat.

  • Australia Rediscovers its Mojo
    Jaraman Cabernet Sauvignon 201289/100

    Josh Raynolds, Vinous, March 2016

    Australia Rediscovers its Mojo
    Ruby-red. Fresh blackberry, cherry pit and licorice on the perfumed nose, along with a floral topnote and a suggestion of black pepper. Sappy, concentrated dark berry and bitter cherry flavors are complemented by a peppery spice quality that builds as the wine opens in the glass. Finishes spicy and taut, with an echo of cracked pepper and subtle tannins.

    Mark Vaughan, iSante Magazine, March 2016


    Aromas of black and red berries, blueberry, cassis, peppery spice, and mocha espresso. Soft and spicy on the palate, opening up to jammy black fruit, exotic spice, and dark chocolate, with a note of toasty cedar. Balanced, spicy finish. Very nicely done.
