I'm going to keep this pretty short and sweet as not much more has to be said other than this is a bloody brilliant Cabernet from the ever consistent Zema Estate.
Clearly 2009 was kind to the Coonawarra region and this wine has a perfect balance of fruit, oak and the classic Cabernet Capsicum notes. For those wondering if I've gone all 'BS' with the Cabernet and Capsicum reference take note. Cabernet grapes and Capsicums actually share common chemical compounds that will lead to similarities in the aroma in certain cases. So on this occasion you can blame science and not wine writers :)
