89pointsDavey Family 2017 Estate Grown Cabernet Sauvignon (McLaren Vale)

Despite the heavier bottle, extra year of aging and heftier price tag, this producer's midrange Cab is the stronger wine. More varietally expressive, the nose is highly minty, laced with tomato leaf, tar, licorice and currants. The palate is hefty but shows restraint and unity. Chalky tannins are taut and herbaceous. The barrel influence is there but is integrated, and the fruit still manages a place at the table. A classic style of big-boned South Aussie Cab. Christina Pickard
