    Winemaker's Notes:

    This wine is a deep and opaque ruby color, with purple hue. The nose is ambitious showing intensely perfumed fruit of blackcurrant, mulberry, raspberry and boysenberry. These aromas are full of complexity - offering senses of cedar, mint and eucalyptus. The palate is overwhelmingly satisfying, hinting the Hallmark cabernet characters of cassis, menthol and satsuma plum. The tannins are integrated and well structured. With a long and balanced finish, this wine shows finesse and elegance. 'The Cover Drive' has been crafted to be enjoyed upon release with a view to medium term cellaring under the correct conditions.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The 2007 The Cover Drive Cabernet Sauvignon which spent 11 months in French and American oak. Dark ruby-colored, it displays a perfume of spice box, tobacco, rose petals, cassis, and cranberry. Sweetly-fruited, medium-bodied, and well-balanced, it will continue to blossom for another 2-3 years and offer prime drinking from 2011 to 2019.

    The Wine Advocate

    Ruby-red. Fresh red berries and minerals on the nose, with a subtle peppery quality adding interest. Brisk and focused, offering vibrant raspberry and cherry flavors and gaining structure on the back end. Already quite seductive, this is really hiding its tannins today.
