Heartland 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon - 91pts

Heartland 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon (Langhorne Creek Limestone Coast – Australia).

Availability: Widely available

Cost: $21.99 (BCLDB Stores)

Tasting Notes: A complex cabernet sauvignon. Strong cassis on the nose and the liquorice is there but you have to work for it. Full berries on the palate. The finish lasts about twenty seconds and is a great end to a well balanced and sophisticated wine. Ben Glaetzer has a great reputation and doesn’t disappoint with this offering. At $22 this is a wine that could be drunk on a fairly regular basis. The cab would likely pair well with a creamy red sauce on a pasta dish while watching some episodes of 24 or perhaps listening to Band of Skulls on the patio. Thanks to the Tasting Room with Terry David Mulligan for introducing Ben Glaetzer and his line of wines. - HC
