86pointsFirst Drop 2016 Mother's Ruin Cabernet Sauvignon (McLaren Vale)

This winter warmer wine opens with notes of plums, blueberry, dark chocolate flakes, cola and slightly soapy, earthy oak spice. Tannins take a few seconds to arrive on the palate but are powerful and mouthfilling when they do come, feeling wooly on the tongue like a blanket. The oak is there too, a little bitter on the finish, and the fruit gets a little lost with these two powerful components at the fore. Christina Pickard
