We had this 2014 PJ’s Angas Plains Cabernet Sauvignon from Langhorne Creek as our South Australian Drink Of The Week because Steve and his family had stayed at a B&B run by Judy from Angas Plains.
In an ingenious move, Judy has a bar fridge stocked with her wine in the B&B which acts as a cellar door so guests can sip her delights without leaving the accommodation!
Steve assures us he paid for the wine.
2014 PJ’s Angas Plains Cabernet Sauvignon tasting notes
Steve started by noting this is not your typical Cabernet Sauvignon.
He says “typical” cabs tend to be harder and he then likened it to seeing a tractor in a paddock.
He said first glance at a tractor and you think the seat’s going to be hard and you’ll feel every bounce but PJ’s cab is like a deluxe tractor with cushioned seats – it really is a smooth ride, he said!
Jesse agreed, noting how it mellows out pleasingly on the palate.
Steve said the finish does have the classic elements of a Cabernet, dragging down the back of your palate but without harshness, almost like watching a movie for free over the fence of a drive in; you might not have all the sound but you have all the images of what’s there.
