The Barossa: An Ascent to Higher Quality

The greater Barossa winegrowing area has the varied climate, altitudes and exposures needed to make pretty much all styles of wine, ranging from high-tension, dry Rieslings to some of the most decadent, high-octane red wines in the world. Lush, flamboyant and often head-spinning, high-alcohol wines have long defined the region for many wine lovers. Today, Barossa deserves a different reputation.

2019 Fundamental Wines by Joey Tensley Cabernet Sauvignon

2019 Fundamental Wines by Joey Tensley Cabernet Sauvignon, 90 points

The 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon is inky and voluptuous. It hits the palate with blackberry jam, chocolate, licorice and spice. I can't think of a California Cabernet that delivers this much quality for the money. Black cherry fruit, tobacco and cedar abound. (AG)
