Proof that brilliant wine doesn’t have to be expensive! The Black Label series from Best's is the epitome of belting wines at quaffing prices. Their 2016 Cabernet is super approachable and entices the next sip. Deep dark purple, more so than red in its infancy and a nose of red and black berries. Flooding the palate is a mix of dark fruit, unobtrusive tannins and a subtle drop of oak.

This wine features delicate fruit, soft rich plums & apparent oak. There’s a full & rich mouthfeel. Some tannins: cellar 5 years… if you can wait that long! I’m not normally a Cabernet drinker but I’d buy this again.

Deep ruby purple colour to kick off. A couple of swirls and it clings to the side of the glass.

Luscious berry characters on the first nose. Lorraine got blackberries and aniseed, but it was raspberries all the way for me. And maybe a bit “plum cakey” - that’s a technical term.

So what does it taste like ?? Perhaps still a bit “green” at first blush. Obviously a very young wine with a crisp, minty sensation on the palate - funnily enough without the mint. A hint of white pepper. Still loads of fruit, but maybe hiding a little behind the other characters at this stage.

We left it alone and came back to it after an hour or so. It had really opened up a lot. Much richer and approachable now and warmer on the longer finish. Really quite delicious.

So how did it go with the Greek lamb - it stepped right up to the mark. This is a wonderful food wine even at this early stage, but if you can give it a few more years, it will just get better. The richness on the palate really went a treat with the barbecue lamb.

Just yum !!

Rich, rich, rich is the way I would describe the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon. Dark, rich purple in colour. Full hit of rich berries at first sip with a lingering of light tannins at the end. Went extremely well with a rich beef ragu! I've been a craft beer drinker for years and only now have I realised the depth a fine wine can reach especially when matched with food and this wine will only get better with age, for $25 how can you go wrong?
