Jim Barry Wines 'The Veto'

Cabernet Sauvignon, 2013

Australia Red

Coonawarra 75cl

A new wine to these shores and the first release in this new series, designed to fit in between the 'Cover Drive' and 'First Eleven' Ranges.
It's 100% Cab. Sauv and matured in a mixture of used French oak for just 9 months (this shows or rather doesn't show on the nose or palate, with very little oak influence).
A bright and vibrant glassful with lifted blackcurrant notes and just a touch of leafiness, very little mint/eucalypt often associated with these wines. The palate is similar with a lovely juiciness to it. This really is all about the lovely Cabernet fruit and quite elegant if a little simple.
Current exchange rates put this retailing over 20 and a find that a bit of a stretch for what is although very pleasant not particularly complex
