Richmond Grove Limited Release Cabernet Sauvignon 2012 (Coonawarra, SA)
14.4%, Screwcap, $22.99
It annoys me that this isn’t better. It’s not as if Jacobs Creek (where this wine is made) can’t make good Coonawarra Cabernet (as St Hugo is still a JC brand) and 2012 was a belter. Yet this isn’t.
Those raspy tannins are going to help this in the long run, but gee this is hard going.
