Jamie Goode's Wine Blog, 'Some tasty wines from First Drop' September 2011.
First Drop Mother’s Ruin
Cabernet Sauvignon 2009 McLaren Vale, Australia
14% alcohol. The defining feature here is vibrant, juicy blackcurrant and blackberry fruit. I like the way that there’s really good definition to the sweet fruit, with some grippy tannins underneath it. Fresh, delicious and joyful, with lovely fruit focus. 91/100
