Reschke RSR Cabernet Sauvignon 2014
- Textured, savoury
We’ve now seen two vintages of this ripper deal fly out the door. For those in the know, this wine never disappoints upon pulling the cork. This cellar release may have eight years of development behind it, but give it a taste and you’ll see that it is only starting to touch its prime drinking window. This wine is usually exclusive to the producer’s database, but somehow our charming wine buyers have managed to get some for the site.
Each glass of this cabernet is sure to be excellent and intriguing. The once boisterous tannins have now mellowed on the silky palate, and fruit is joined by herbaceous and somewhat meaty notes. There’s still classic cabernet cassis and blackberry, which is accompanied by rosemary, thyme and a long and savoury finish. Be quick, mofo, ‘cos this wine has been known to fly quick!
It’s cool, we get it, you want to know absolutely everything about this wine. Well here you go, go nuts.

Coonawarra = Cabernet. True in a sense, but also simplistic. Some of the best wine from the Coonawarra is Shiraz, which is frequently overlooked in the search for the perfect Cab Sav. Not to belittle Coonawarra Cab either, but it's funny how often we get caught insisting that one variety is the best expression of a specific place, grown in a variable environment with so many factors at play. All we're saying is: don't miss the great wines that aren't the usual suspects. Coonawarra has quite a few amazing hands other than their trump card.
