Zema Estate 2005 Family Selection Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon

It only scored 94 points in Halliday and I'd tell Jim he was dreaming. This has got to be 99. There are so many layers of flavour in this that every sip is an adventure. Given that many flagship wines are in the $100+ realm this is a joke at this price. It's the most exciting cabernet I've tasted in years.

And interesting to note that the winemaker is Greg Clayfield who was the prodigy behind brilliant Lindemans' Coonawarra's of the '80s, before the winery was taken over by a brewery.
Sad that, but this wine more than makes up for it.

Our Price: $39 by the mixed or straight dozen
