Sandpiper 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon

Looking for a red wine with a little bit of style and class that won't break the bank? This little number from Barossa winery Thorn-Clarke will do the business - and leave you with some change from a $20 note. Estate-grown fruit offers up varietal blackcurrant and dark chocolate notes with some well-integrated oak. With some plum and spice notes bringing support, along with some suppleness and length, this was a particular favourite with my wife, who preferred it to several more expensive Barossa offerings because of its astutely judged balance. Very nice indeed. $18.
