2006 Yalumba The Signature Cabernet/Shiraz Barossa Valley
Style: Red Wine
Grape Type: Red Blend
Region: Barossa Valley
92 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - July/August 2011
(a blend of cabernet sauvignon and shiraz): Deep ruby. Pungent bouquet evokes cherry compote, cassis, pipe tobacco and rose, with notes of vanilla and mocha gaining strength with air. Deeply pitched dark fruit flavors show impressive vivacity and pick up oak spice and herb character on the back half. Dusty tannins add shape to the long, spicy, appealingly sweet finish. Drinks easily now but this has the depth and balance to reward patience.
