Lonely Grape TV # 147 Oenotria Vintners 2011 Cabernet

Who said you could not make a good Cabernet in 2011?  This one was so well looked after that the winemaker basically slept with the wine during vintage.

Lonely Grape TV #142 Possingham & Summers 2009 Cabernet

A new face for an old winery.  These guys still over deliver and continue to be little known.  With wines like this they will not be unknown for long.

Lonely Grape TV #131 Thorpe Wines 2008 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon

As usual Thorpe Wines over deliver on their price point.  I have been watching this wine for a couple of years now and I think it is really starting to drink well.
