Taylors 'Jaraman' Cabernet Sauvignon 2007

Grape Variety: 100% Cabernet Sauvignon

Growing Region: 54% Clare Valley & 46% Coonawarra, Australia

Chief Winemaker: Adam Eggins

Silver Medal - Vienna International Wine Challenge 2009.

Jaraman is the aboriginal word for seahorse and this range has been named after the fossilised remains of seahorses that were found on the family's Clare Valley estate and are present on all of the Taylors wine labels. Jaraman wines are created from the fusion of two exceptional parcels of fruit from iconic wine regions in Australia.
The result is a single variety wine which is multi-dimensional, highlighting and enhancing the nuances of both terroirs. The winemaking team of Mitchell, Adam and Helen has guided into the bottle a wine that will bring pleasure to any meal and occasion now and with patience over the next several years.
In the glass you will see a rich red colour with a bright red hue. On the nose the wine has lifted, fruit aromas of blackcurrant and morello cherry along with mint and secondary, complex aromas of dark chocolate, and mocha coffee.
The wine has ripe flavours of black cherry and cassis, followed by subtle secondary characters of cinnamon, spice and integrated cedar from appropriate French oak maturation. The palate is elegant with a long and persistent finish. Decant for 20-30 minutes and serve at 18C.

Drinking well now; and will age well for another 4-5 years.

Perfect wine match with prime cuts of red meats, jus reductions and ripe cheeses, enjoy.
