Winemaker's Notes:

Cabernet sauvignon has long been recognized as an excellent variety in the Clare Valley. The addition of some cabernet franc gives complexity to the wine, and twelve months in oak yet another dimension. The knockout nose of ripe, wild berry fruit is followed by a voluptuous palate of high extract and weight. Flavors of cassis, liquorice and spice layer the palate.
My Notes:

About Tim Adams:

The Tim Adams winery is located 130 kilometres north of Adelaide in the beautiful Clare Valley, South Australia. From 1985 when just 10 tonnes of grapes were vinified, the winery now crushes 500 tonnes - around 250 tonnes for the Tim Adams label, and contract winemaking for other local labels, the balance. This is now sourced from 11 local growers as well as from our own vineyards (joint venture with best friends Grant & Jackie Crawley). On our vineyard we grow Riesling, Semillon and Shiraz. Planned plantings for the next few years include Malbec, Cabernet Franc, Viogner, Pinot Grigio as well as increasing the plantings of Shiraz and Riesling.
