The Harbor 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon - ~$6

The Harbor Cabernet Sauvignon is a wine sourced to Australia’s capacious South Eastern Australia region. A staggering amount of wine comes out SE Australia; this bottle's a good example (emphasis on the "good") of why. It's well-made in its modest fashion and eminently affordable. 

The nose is slightly herbal and features big, jammy, dark red fruit.  In the mouth you get sweet blackberry and raspberry fruit with a slight menthol bite and soft short tannins. It's tasty and engaging in what's become a trademark Australian style.

Simply put, this is a nice, straightforward Australian Cab in the company of a Lindeman’s Bin 45 Cab or a Rosemount Cab/Shiraz blend.  A good wine to pair with the grill (spring’s just around the corner!)


Drinkability: 7.5/10
Price: 4/5
Total value: 12.5/15
