Cooks Lot Cabernet Sauvignon 2011 (Orange, NSW)
13.5%., Screwcap, $19.99
What an atypical wine this is. Atypically generous that is, the style very fruit forward given the Orange norm. Particularly so considering that 2011 is considered to be a very cool and late vintage…
An atypical wine – and perhaps not all that Orange like – but certainly approachable. Still missing any real regional/terroir joy though.
Score: 16/20 87/100
Would I buy it? Not really.
