Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar, July 2012, Josh Raynolds.
2010 First Drop Wines Cabernet Sauvignon
Mother's Ruin McLaren Vale
Glass-staining ruby. Classic cabernet aromas of red- and blackcurrant, cherry, tobacco and medicinal herbs, with a floral overtone and a strong note of mocha. Juicy, gently chewy and deep in dark fruit flavor, with gentle acidity adding definition and lift. Dusty tannins give grip to a long, spicy and nicely focused finish.
