Wine Colour
On release, the wine is a vibrant crimson red.

Wine Bouquet
Vibrant spicy aromas of red currant, plum and a touch of spice.

Wine Palate
Juicy blackcurrant fruits along with subtle coffee and savoury cedar flavours and a smooth gentle finish.
The quality of the Padthaway and Clare Valley components really sets this wine apart. Distinctly flavoursome and true to its varietal origins – but at once soft and approachable. This is the sort of wine you know you should share but just want to keep to yourself.

Cellaring Notes
Has been crafted to be enjoyed immediately but will cellar up to and possibly beyond 2014.

    You've got to love a cabernet that ticks all the quality boxes but retails for under $15. This budget offering from family-owned Wakefield offers drinkability with a capital D. It's vibrant and juicy, designed to be enjoyed in its youth, but also has a complex palate with dark cassis fruit flavours, hints of mocha and savoury oak in perfect balance. A blend of fruit from Padthaway and the Clare Valley... The ideal wine to have on hand when friends drop around for a barbecue.

    Here is a nicely priced full bodied cabernet sauvignon from Wakefield. It's an everyday drink that won't send you to the poor house. Nice chocolate flavours and a light pepper finish.

    A well-priced red, with good colour, minty/berry cabernet aromas with a touch of eucalyptus, lots of flavour and substance, sweet ripe fruit. There's a touch of hardness on the finish that doesn't stop it being terrific value for money. Drink now to five years.

    Promised Land Cabernet Sauvignon 200988/100

    Jeremy Pringle, Western Australian, April 2011

    Wine Will Eat Itself
    A soft and generous medium to full-bodied red wine brimming with opulent fleshy cabernet black currant. It's well balanced with subtle oak and fine-grained tannins in support. Terrific value.

    James Halliday, 1001 Wines Under $20, November 2011


    Although Wakefield has a hefty 340 ha of estate vineyards in the Clare Valley, it is probable that some Riverland cabernet sauvignon was employed here along with a estate component. That said, the regional make-up is of limited relevance to a wine at this price point. Good hue. It has typical Wakefield ability to over-deliver at this price point, with cassis fruit offset by savoury tannins. Drink it now with hearty food.
