3 drops Cabernet 2015 ($25)

3drops is now a well-established producer in the heart of the Great Southern starting to make a solid name for itself with some impressive and well-priced wines, both reds and whites. The aim is to produce wines which are representative of the Great Southern, with structure and balance. A promising pinot is a recent addition to the range.

The Cabernet is a vibrant blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. the nose shows aromatics of blackberry and rasberry intermingled with vanilla from the wine’s French oak maturation.

You will find the palate balanced between soft dark berry fruit and soft unobtrusive tannins. A wine style that is approachable in its youth, but will continue to develop over 5-6 years.

A medium to full bodied blend of cabernet sauvignon and cabernet franc. It is a well-presented wine offering attractive drinking for the next few years. Has a smoky leafy blackcurrant aroma with traces of savory oak and black olive. The palate is plush with a black fruit plummy richness. An elegant wine with structure and poise. Score: 90/100 Cellar: 5 years
