95 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - July/August 2006

($70) Inky ruby. Powerful, deeply scented, brooding aromas of cassis, blueberry, kirsch, tobacco and spicecake. This offers unreal concentration and structure, with youthful, primal dark berry and cherry flavors that expand and deepen with air. Ridiculously sweet but focused on the very long finish, which shows impressive lift and poise for a wine with such flavor drama. Wow!

This is what Australian Cabs are all about. Very limitted - buy it when you find it!

Here, in the district of Medoc, the varietal is the key component of blended wines that also may include some Merlot and Cabernet Franc, and even Malbec and Petit Verdot. Moving slightly south, Cabernet Sauvignon meets Merlot in roughly equal proportions in the red wines of Graves. In both of these Bordeaux regions, the top bottles...
