A variation of + or - 1.5% is allowed by law from what is stated., so you may actually have 13% or 16% ABV.
My day has not been wasted. '' When i bought the bottle it said 13.5% alcohol your honour and so I enjoyed it thinking I was safe to drive". Look young man", well the judge was nearly one hundred so everyone's young, "You didn't have to drink three bottles now did you !" Guilty.

Of course I did know that on a wine label, only varietals with an ingredient content greater than 15% have to be mentioned. As you may know, Penfolds Grange has had Cabernet in it for many, many vintages but we all knew it as Grange Hermitage didn't we. Sometimes 11per cent king of the grapes in the Grange.

This is SCHOOL HOUSE CELLAR RELEASE CABERNET SAUVIGNON
they previously had the 2010.
The 2010 School House is a ripper if you appreciate a little bit of age on your cabernet. I splurged on 2 dozen and I am very happy with the wine. I may well get a dozen or two of the 2013 as well.

Quite keen on Wrattonbully reds in general, vinonotebook has what appears to be a mostly positive spin:
"Medium deep garnet in colour. Full of brambly crushed blackberry leaf, cassis, light pencilly wood, hazelnut choc with the herbal aspects leading to sorrel and menthol with turned earth and diary leather. Medium-full in the mod Australian Cabernet style, There’s some yeasty darkness underpinning choc and cassis with plenty of herbal influence. A touch contrived through the finish, there’s almost a miserly tightness to the close, near on abrupt….nay, curt. Tannins are fine and firm. I think a short space of time in the cellar will be beneficial."
Still not clear on the specificity of "diary leather" when "sweaty saddle" would have done...

There ain't too many people who sit on their diary, W&d. Then again, there ain't too many people who still have a leather-bound diary! Heaven forbid if there is a pong coming from your iPhone ...

Yeasty darkness sounds very fungal, not pleasant.

Who would ever pay $320 for a wine called Grand Pappy?
