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 yet at the same time, remains in balanced 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 2023, possibly beyond.

    This cab sauv is a careful blend of ripe fruit from Clare Valley (55 per cent) and Coonawarra (45 per cent). The resulting wine is deep red in colour with a vibrant purple hue to the edges. There are lifted aromas of cassis and blackcurrant, with subtle chocolate mint characters and complex spice and cigar box notes from the oak. It is a full-bodied, well-balanced wine, with a long and persistent finish. Will reward with some time in the cellar.

    Strong with mint and blackcurrant but feels velvety as it slips along the tougue and has enough weight to make you sit up straighter. This is a very good Jaraman cabernet. It will hold and mature but I'd drink it young, mostly because it feels so good to sink your teeth into its youthful juiciness.

    I always look forward to tasting the new release Jaraman wines from Wakefield. Once again the new vintage lives up to the outstanding reputation of this label, being rich and luscious.

    Green olive and black olive. Cassis and resin. Black pastille gloss and a meaty counterpoint. Almost syrupy with hyper fine tannins that work like a icroPlane Grater across through the palate. Olive savoury with chicory bittersweet tartness. Herbaceous, (almost medicinal) lift. Closed, reticent and dark. Only after being open for 2 days did light black fruit start to peak like first light at dawn after a moonless night. An odd beastie, this will need time to (hopefully) age wonderfully.

    Jaraman Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

    The fruit for this entry in the Jaraman line comes from Clare Valley (55 percent) and Coonawarra (45 percent). After fermentation, it was aged in a combination of new and previously used French oak. Dark fruit and savory herb aromas abound on the nose of this Cabernet. The palate is lush and loaded with dark fruit, copious spices and bits of mineral. Toast, earth, hints of vanilla and lots more fruit flavors are all in play on the above-average finish. Firm acid and tannins mark the structure here. What I like most about this Cabernet is how fresh and refreshing it is.

    Very minty, with hard, manufactured acids and tannins, and gritty, astringent finish. Not much pleasure here. Tasted October 2015.

    Dynamic, opening with a note of fresh mint that gives way to plum and currant flavors, and cedar and nutmeg accents, on a taut frame. Drink now through 2028.

    Screw cap. Excellent Cabernet Sauvignon: full bodied and complex in flavor, it is fairly rich, well balanced, long on the palate, and mildly tannic and very persistent in the finish. In aroma/flavor, it tastes of black currant, eucalyptus, cherry, tobacco, cedar, toast, pepper, and green olive. Warrants aging. Fine value.55% Clare Valley, 45% Coonawarra. Aged 7 months in French oak barrels. 14.5% [2018-2023]

    Minty coolness on the nose of this gorgeous Australian red wine is flooded by fleshy blackberry richness on the palate. A hedonistÆs wine to fill the senses. Full-bodied and smooth Cabernet Sauvignon. Finishes with dried herbs, tobacco leaves, cedar brush, cracked black pepper, dark spice and black olive. Firm tannins. Good cellar wine. Very satisfying, especially at this price. Pair with ribeye steak.
