2005 Yalumba Cabernet Sauvignon The Menzies Coonawarra
Style: Red Wine
Grape Type: Cabernet Sauvignon
91 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - September/October 2008
($45) Full, deep red. Pungent cherry, blackcurrant, tobacco and floral aromas are complicated by cured tobacco and exotic spices. Deep dark berry flavors are sweetened by suave vanillin oak spice and given a jolt on the back by dusty minerals. Becomes sweeter with air, finishing with impressive juicy persistence and a lingering mocha quality. Young, for sure, but this is already showing complexity.
