Jim Barry "The Nurse Series" Cab Sauv 2020. Without any evidence, I am assuming that this is a charitable version of "The Cover Drive" as $1 per sale goes to the McGrath Foundation.
Very grippy, particularly since this is Clare Valley Cabernet and not Coonawarra. Though this wine doesn't have Brett it does have a "9V battery" flavour to it which is very offputting. Graphite and liquorice make up the rest of the flavour notes with a very long finish.
Thank goodness this has a charitable portion to it, otherwise there would be no redeeming feature to it.
Have always hated the Cover Drive cab
Tbh I'm no fan of Clare Reds in general but for an objectively good winery AND my favourite cricket shot the Cover Drive has never been an enjoyable wine for mine.
I came in here to post about another wine but I'd already reviewed it. But can double down on the Roxanne the Razor Negro/Nero blend. Brilliant little wine
