Yalumba ‘The Cigar’ Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon 2011

Cabernet Sauvignon from Australia - South Australia
Review Date : 13-Jul-2014
Dark, deep, ruby-red colour, this is textbook in blackcurrant Cabernet Sauvignon fruit, quite linear and fresh with intense blackcurrant leaf notes, youthful and primary. Not the dimension or detail to take it a level up. Firm and driven on palate with a core with good line, the suppleness a feature. Blackcurrants, cassis and hints of mintiness, quite pure in expression, the wine showing clarity. Lovely background oak nuances. A classical example, drinking over the next 5-6 years. Fruit from ‘The Menzies’ vineyard, fermented to 13.5% alc., the wine aged 16 months in French oak, 25% new. 17.5+/20 Jul 2014 RRP $31.99
